**1. Homework Statement**

A pilot flies horizontally at 1300 km/h, at height

*h*= 76 m above initially level ground. However, at time

*t*= 0, the pilot begins to fly over ground sloping upward at angle θ = 7.5° (see the figure). If the pilot does not change the airplane's heading, at what time

*t*does the plane strike the ground?

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Second question today, been taking chunks at my homework all throughout the day!

So i know the Xi is 76 m. I know that the Vi is 36.11 m/s once i convert from kilometers. I know my t=0 and that since the plane is falling, my a = 9.8 m/s^2. im not sure what the angle 7.5 does to the problem however. That is where I am stuck.
