    |dw:1320612547227:dw| I think this will help you figure it out on your own. Consider using the sine function to set up a problem and solve for 14,816 ft. Good luck.

    vertical component of velocity = 278sin11 ft/sec to find time to climb to 14816 : 278 sin11 = 14816 / t t = 14816 / 278 sin 11

    work out the last line t = 14816 / 278 * sin 11
