A gull is flying horizontally 8.17 m above the ground at 6.35 m/s. The bird is carrying a clam in its beak and plans to crack the clamshell by dropping it on some rocks below. Ignoring air resistance, what is the horizontal distance to the rocks at the moment that the gull should let go of the clam?

    how long does it take to drop the clam:

    8.17=1/2 g t^2 solve for time, then

    how far does it travel horiztohally?

    distance=6.35*timeinair
