Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Stuck on Tuesday, July 6, 2010 at 5:46pm.

"An airplane is climbing at an angle of 15 degrees to the horizontal with the sun directly overhead. The shadow of the airplane is observed to be moving across the ground at 200 km/h. How long does it take for the plane to increase its altitude by 1000 m"?

There was another part to this question that I had figured out. I had calculated the actual airspeed of the plane, which was 207 km/h.
