A top-gun pilot, practicing radar avoidance maneuvers, is flying horizontally at 1300 km/hr, just 35 m above level ground. Suddenly, the plane encounters terrain that slopes gently upwards at 5, an amount difficult to detect visually. If the pilot doesn’t correct his trajectory, calculate the time the pilot has before flying into the ground?
distance to intercept=.035km ctn 5
convert that time to minutes
