Question

# Two cannonballs, A and B, are fired from the ground with identical initial speeds, but with $\theta_{\mathrm{A}}$ larger than $\theta_{\mathrm{B}}$. Which travels farther?

Solutions

Verified

The maximum range happens for an object launched at $45^{\circ}$. If $\theta_A$ is less than $45^{\circ}$ then cannonball A travels further than cannonball B.

However if $\theta_A$ is greater than $45^{\circ}$ then cannonball B travels further than cannonball A.
