Hey,
I want a piecewise function as follows.

rmax[s_] :=
Piecewise[{{2.5, Abs[s] <= 1}, {Min[2.5, 2/Sqrt[s^2 - 1]],
Abs[s] > 1}}]

The second value makes sense whenever the condition is satisfied, but I still get error messages when I try to plot it because the Min function gets imaginary numbers when s<1.

the error messages are
Min::nord: Invalid comparison with 1.25+2.9729790718136506 i attempted. etc
