under the influence of gravity?

consider the maximum height, velocity vertical is zero.

Vf=vi+gt

0=12sinTheta-9.8t

t=12sinTheta/9.8

time in the air is twice that time.

no, horizontal distance

13=12cosTheta*t=12cosTheta*2*12sinTheta/9.8

13=12^2/9.8 *2 cosTheta*sinTheta

remember siin2Theta=2sinTheta*cosTheta

solve for theta

13*9.8/144=sin 2Theta

check this.

Theta=50.6 deg
