v/t=a isn't right, acceleration is given by the rate of change of velocity ie dv/dt = a, so you can't solve for time in that manner, since the velocity will be changing.

In addition, something has gone wrong with your trigonometry, I think. Have you drawn a diagram?

In future, you might have more help posting this in the introductory physics forum, since it's at that level, and more people read it.
