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?

  • Physics -

    distance to intercept=.035km ctn 5

    time: distance/speed=.035ctn5/(1300km/hr)

    convert that time to minutes
