Question

You hear the sonic boom of a high-speed jet plane exactly 4.00 s after it passes directly overhead in level flight. At the time you hear the boom, you see the plane at an angle of 25.0 o above the horizon. Assume that the speed of sound at the altitude of the plane is 325 m/s.
How fast is the plane traveling? What is the altitude of the plane?
