At an airshow, the pilot of a rising plane releases a $7.5\text{ kg}$ sack of flour. At the moment of release, the plane is $870\text{ m}$ above the ground and is moving at $95 \text{ m/s}$. The angle of the plane's rise is unknown. The sack of flour continues to rise and has a speed of $68\text{ m/s}$ when it reaches its highest point.

Ignoring the effect of air resistance, which of the following is the maximum height of the sack of flour above the ground?


$1100\text{ m}$


$1300\text{ m}$


$2700\text{ m}$


The angle of the initial velocity of the sack of flour is needed in order to solve this question.
