    Can anybody help me with this? I've used Bernoulli's principle to get u=√2gz. And from that, I have the horizontal distance=t(√2gz) and the vertical distance=0.5gt2I've equated the two to get horizontal distance=√(8z-4z2 ) but I can't figure out the next step.

    To find a "maximum" it's usual to differentiate and place the result equal to zero.
