Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The max distance is the v^2/g where v is the initial velocity and g is the acceleration due to gravity. I dont get 1.16 m?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It depends on how you're throwing the dart, are you projecting it with an angle made with the horizon or are u projecting it horizontally?or u just shooting it vertically down from a cliff? When projected with an angle \[\theta\] with the horizontal, the distance is given by \[R=\frac{u^2\sin(2\theta)}{g}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're right he doesn't specify so I made a few assumptions. Throwing at 45 deg to the horizontal at the ground gives max range.
