Answer:

#4.2416 s#

Explanation:

Data:-
Initial velocity#=v_0=24m/s#

Angle of throwing #=theta=(2pi)/3#

Time of flight#=T=??#

Acceleration due to gravity#=g=9.8m/s^2#

Sol:-

We know that:

#T=(2v_0sintheta)/g#

#implies T=(2*24*Sin((2pi)/3))/9.8=(48*0.866)/9.8=4.2416 #

#implies T=4.2416s#

Hence the projectile will land at #4.2416 s# approximately.
