Halfway through the track, Achilles decided to take a nap since the tortoise was so far behind. However, when he woke up, the tortoise was already near the finish line. Achilles started to run again with constant speed of 8 m/s, but he lost to the tortoise by 3 seconds. How long did Achilles sleep?
Note: Let the tortoise and Achilles' speed be constant
