I need help in this projectile motion problem. determining angle from distance and initial velocity? View All
Projectile motion to date has been seen as how far something will travel at a given initial trajectory and velocity. The practical application of this is slightly different: few want to know about how far something will go. Rather, most applications involve targetting an object at some distance, given a particular initial velocity.

Question - Generate the well-formed, generic solution for determining angle from distance and initial velocity.
