Water stream projection distance calculation for different nozzle shapes

Hello,
I have built a device and i want to test different types of nozzles. Problem is; the size of the nozzles i need are hard to find in company stock. So i need to make sure before i make any order.

I have no background or degree any related area so it is hard to understand the equations, how to use them in my case.
I have checked all the formulas about nozzle distance but in most examples the nozzle are directed to the ground.

If someone have spare time, please guide me about the formula for distance that nozzles can shoot water before drift when directed horizontally or upwards with a 45 degree angle like in the pic attached.

I am using a 120 PSI diaphragm pump, 6mm tubes and 0.4mm misting nozzle. What is the effect of the gravity and nozzle angle in this case?

Thank you.

Please tell us more details about the equations you've seen, and what you have tried so far.

I imagine the OP has looked for information in Firefighting sources? I would imagine that tables obtained from measurements would be more available than equations.

Hello, i am working on the spray coverage formula and trying to find a connection with the water jet formula. I need to find the "L" before drift in different positionings of the nozzle. Atmospheric conditions but no wind. I guess it will be theoritical.
Thank you.

@sophiecentaur now i will check those too, Thank you.
