Well, its a debate about what's the best angle to fire a projectile to achieve maximum range.

using the formulae i found

r = (22sin(x) x 11cos(x))/9.8

where x is the angle, 45 gets the most range. But some people say 61 degrees is

using that formulae and ignoring air resistance 61 achives less range than 45.

Air resistance changes the range, yes, but it changes it for all angles.

Is 61 somehow the better angle for air resistance?
