Made a small mistake and can't figure out what to do->Projectile motion

    [SOLVED] Made a small mistake and can't figure out what to do-->Projectile motion

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Ball is launched at 62 degrees above horizontal at 22 m/s. What distance does the ball travel?


    2. Relevant equations

    x=x0+vx0t


    3. The attempt at a solution

    x0=0
    vy0=22 m/s
    y0=0
    theta=62
    vy0=22sin62=19 m/s
    vx0=22cos62=10 m/s

    but I messed up on my time calculation
    t=vy0/gravity.
    that's not right. what's the correct time calculation?

    t=vy0/gravity.

    this time is to reach the maximum height. Total time is twice this time.
