I have attempted solving it but I am stuck at the point below:

D*Tan A = (g/2)(D/Vo)^2(Cos A)^2

where,

D=1290 m

Vo= 409 m/s

I think Tan A is the solution but i do not know how to get to that point

Do you know the definition of TanA in terms of SinA and CosA? Use that to isolate A.

That's as far as I can go

tanA=sinA/cosA.

Alternatively, you could use [tex]tanA=\frac{u^2sin^2A}{gD}[/tex]

sin2A=2sinAcosA, u=v_0

i found the answer. I used Sin A = gD/Vo^2

Had a little help
