A plane taking off leaves the runway at 32º to the horizontal, travelling at 180kmh-1

How long will it take to climb to an altitude of 1000m?

The VERTICAL component of the 180 km/hr @ 32 degrees will be:

 

180 sin (32) = 95.385 km/hr

 

Now:

1000m = 1 km

 

1 km / 95.385 km/hr  =  .0105 hr = .629 min = 37.74 sec
