A high-performance jet plane, practicing radar avoidance maneuvers, is in horizontal flight 45.0 m above the level ground. Suddenly, the plane encounters terrain that slopes gently upward at 3.50°, an amount difficult to detect (see the figure). How much time does the pilot have to make a correction to avoid flying into the ground ( s)? The speed of the plane is 1150 km/h.
