An Alaskan rescue plane traveling 36 m/s
drops a package of emergency rations from
a height of 137 m to a stranded party of
explorers.Where does the package strike the ground relative to the point directly below where it was released
To find out, multiply the time to fall a distance H by the plane's velocity.
X = V*t
t = sqrt(2H/g)
H = 137 m.
Solve for X
