    Vertical component of velocity = 90 sin θ

    Velocity must be 0 at a height of 276m

    From v² = u² + 2as, → 0 = u² - 2 · (9.81) · 276

    from which u = 73.587

    hence 90 sin θ = 73.587

    sin θ = 73.587 / 90 = 0.8176

    therefore θ = 54.9°

    From y = [V*sinΘ]²/(2g) I get

    sin²Θ = 2gy/V² = 0.6678 →

    Θ = 54.8°
