An Alaskan rescue plane traveling 42 m/s drops a package of emergency rations from a height of 117 m to a stranded party of explorers.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
Where does the package strike the ground relative to the point directly below where it was released?
Answer in units of m
006 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points
What is the horizontal component of the ve locity just before it hits?
Answer in units of m/s
007 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points
What is the vertical component of the velocity just before it hits? (Choose upward as the positive vertical direction)
Answer in units of m/s

physics 
bobpursley,
time in air: t=sqrt(2gh)
horizontal distance: 42*time
horizonal velocity: same as plane
vertical final: g*timeinair
