    \[\text{Range}=\frac{v^2\sin{2\theta}}{g}\] You're given range = 79.5 m v = 30 m/s g = acceleration due to gravity.

    Um, you just asked the same question again. Did you solve for theta?

    I think the formula for air-time is something like \[t=\frac{2v\sin\theta}{g}\] I might be wrong; I haven't taken physics in 3 years.

    Use the formula: Range=( u^2 sin2x )/ g where x is the angle of projection.

    u- velocity, g- acc. due to gravity.
