I am having trouble with problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A plane needs 300 m to take off while going 88km/h. It then climbs with a constant speed of 88 km/h along a straight line, just celaring a power line 15m high at a horizontal distance of 460 m from it initial position.

I am asked to find the rate of climb of the plane.

I have figured out how to get the acceleration with

(Vf^2 - Vi^2)/2d a

but I do not know where to go from here.
