An Alaskan rescue plane drops a package of emergency rations to a stranded party of explorers, as illustrated below in Figure 18. The plane is traveling horizontally at 30m/s at a height of 200m above the ground.

a. What horizontal distance does the package fall before landing?
b. Find the velocity of the package just before it hits the ground.

  • Physics - ,

    a. (30 m/s)*(time to fall 200 m)
    b. - g*t is the vertical component
    30 m/s is the horizontal component.
    t is the time required to fll H = 200 m, which is
    sqrt(2H/g)
    You do the numbers
