Answer:

#15.2Sec#

Explanation:

We know for non inertial frame of reference we have Newtons Laws of motion Valid We can Use the same here

On the Object we have #g# acting downwards and U (velocity) has components which we have shown .

From Newtons laws of motion we get
#V=U+at#

if we apply the same here we get
#-Usintheta=Usintheta-g"t"#

similarly we substitute the values to get

#t=(2*Usintheta)/g#
#t=(2*86sin((2pi)/3))/9.8=15.2Sec#
