Welcome to Tutor!

We won't do your homework for you, but will help you if you get stuck.
Normally you would show us your current best coding effort and we
would help you from there.

To get you started, I might suggest the following outline of what to do:

1)  Put your range formula in proper mathematical form.  Assuming your
email formatting did not get mangled, you have a little bit of cleanup
effort to get the formula right.  Example, V is squared not V2.

2)  Use your knowledge of algebra and trigonometry to solve for the angle.

3)  Express this solution in Python terms, using "*" for
multiplication, "/" for division, etc.  Use understandable variable
names.  You will probably want to use the math standard library.

Attempt this and if you get into trouble copy and paste both your
actual code you tried to run and any error tracebacks into a plain
text email and we will endeavor to help you along.
