I want to know the method to find the distance traveled by a projectile in its whole journey in terms of angle of projection, initial velocity, and any other universal constants.

integration would give us the area not the length.

You can use the fact that at maximum distance the Y co ordinate of projectile is zero:

The distance traveled by the projectile = R = U^{2}.sin 2x / g

You could use integration over the path length (i.e the equation of trajectory of a projectile motion)
