An airplane flying horizontally at a constant speed of 350 km/h over level ground releases a bundle of food supplies. Ignore the effect of the air on the bundle.
a)What is the bundle’s initial vertical component of velocity? =0
b)What is the bundle’s initial horizontal component of velocity? =350
c) What is its horizontal component of velocity just before hitting the ground? =350
I got the answers, but how do I calculate them?

Vo = (350km/h,0deg.).
a. Yo = ver. = 350sin(0) = 0.
b. Xo = hor. = 350cos(0) = 350km/h.
c. Xo = hor. = 350cos(0) = 350km/h.
