An important relationship to note is that between force and <math> \theta </math>. The combined force balance indicates a relationship between force and <math>sin \theta * cos \theta * cos \theta</math>.
As a result, the optimal tilt of the blades would provide an angle to the airflow such that <math>sin \theta * cos \theta * cos \theta</math> is a maximum. This value has been presented in the graph below to show how the value changes as <math>\theta </math> is adjusted.
