The projectile will reach its maximum height when the velocity equals zero.

#### Explanation:

At an angle of

The maximum height of the shot will be the vertical component

The initial velocity of the vertical component is

Using

Assuming that the force due to gravity is in the downward direction, therefore, the upward direction has a negative sign.
