An airplane is flying horizontally with a constant velocity of 160 m/s at an altitude of 5400 m when it drops a package.

How far ahead of the target along the x direction should the plane be when it releases the package?

  • physics - ,

    Calculate how long it takes to hit the ground. Call that time T.

    Use H = (1/2) g T^2
    Rearrange it to solve for T. H is 5400 m and you should know what g is.

    Multiply T by the horizontal flight velocity, 160 m/s.

    That will tell you how far the box moves forward along the flight path while it is falling.
