Find the time th it takes the projectile to reach its maximum height H. Express th in terms of v0, theta, and g (the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity). Find tR, the time at which the projectile hits the ground after having traveled through a horizontal distance R. Express the time in terms of v0, theta, and g. Find H, the maximum height attained by the projectile. Express the time in terms of v0, theta, and g. Find the total distance R (often called the range) traveled in the x direction; see the figure in the problem introduction.
