- Homework Statement
- How does the angle at which a projectile is launched vary with respect to the horizontal range it covers?

- Relevant Equations
- R = u^2(sin(2(theta))/g,

I would like to conduct an experiment asking the question "how does the angle at which a projectile is launched vary with respect to the horizontal range it covers?" Ultimately, I'd like to prove that the horizontal range is directly proportional to sin(2(theta)). This will be done with the aid of a cannon. However, how do I ensure that the initial velocity is constant? As I change the angle, do I change the projectile's initial velocity? Namely, how do I control the horizontal initial velocity to yield this linear relationship?
