Projectile Launch Angle formula

\(\large{  \theta = \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \; sin^{-1} \left( \frac{ g\; d }{ v_0^2 }  \right)   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ \theta }\) = angle of the initial vertical from x-axis

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ d }\) = horizontal position

\(\large{ v_0 }\) = launch velocity
