Homework Help: Physics

A rescue plane wants to drop supplies to isolated mountain climbers on a rocky ridge H = 231 m below. If the plane is traveling horizontally with a speed of 227 km/h (63.1 m/s), how far in advance of the recipients (horizontal distance) must the goods be dropped?

Suppose, instead, that the plane releases the supplies a horizontal distance of x = 325 m in advance of the mountain climbers. What vertical velocity (use the positive direction as upwards) should the supplies be given so that they arrive precisely at the climbers' position?
