intro. to physics

posted by on .

a helicopter is ascending vertically with a speed of 5.20 m/s. at a height of 100 m above the Earth, a package is dropped from a window. how much time does it take for the package to reach the ground ? (hint: v0 for the package equals the speed of the helicopter). thank you !

  • intro. to physics - ,

    h=v(o) •t +gt^2/2,
    g•t^2 +2•v(o) •t -2•h•= 0,
    9.8•t^2 +2•5.2 •t -2•100= 0,
    t = {-10.4 ±sqrt[(10.4)^2+4•9.8•200]}/2•9.8.
    t = 4.01 s
