## Homework Statement

[/B]

A bottle rocket can shoot its projectile vertically to a height of 26.0m. At what angle should the bottle rocket be fired to reach its maximum horizontal range, and what is that range? (You can ignore air resistance).

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

For the first part: I think the angle the rocket should be fired is 45 degrees, because it's the optimal angle for projectiles, where it travels the furthest when launched at this angle; am I right?

For the second part: I have no idea what to do to start this part of the problem. I know that I now have the angle (45) and the height (26.0). I don't know where to go from this point.
