Unformatted text preview: this was air resistance. 3. The 45 degree launch angle is the one which creates the maximum range. This is the ideal angle because 90 degrees will cause the ball to go straight up, and an angle at 0 will not cause it to go very far. 4. The 25 degree has a larger value for the range with a calculated value of 1.79 meters. Whereas, the 0 degree angle only had a range of 1.59 meters. To mathematically come to this conclusion, one could use the kinematic equation for projectile motion: y(t)=h+(v0sinθ)t-1/2(gt^2)...
