If we neglect air resistance, then the range of a ball (or any projectile) shot at an angle θ with respect to the x axis and with an initial velocity v0, is given by

R(θ)= (V0^2/g) sin(2θ)      for 0 ≤ θ ≤ pie/2

where g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 meters per second per second).

For what value of θ is the maximum range attained? (Note that the answer is numerical, not symbolic.)
