A bomber ﬂies horizontally with a speed of
225 m/s relative to the ground. The altitude
of the bomber is 3010 m and the terrain is
level. Neglect the eﬀects of air resistance.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s
a) How far from the point vertically under the point of release does a bomb hit the
Answer in units of m
b) At what angle from the vertical at the point
of release must the telescopic bomb sight be
set so that the bomb hits the target seen in
the sight at the time of release?
Answer in units of
a. find how long it takes an object to free fall 3010 m. then, horizontal distance=225m/s*time
b. what is
arc tan(3010/horizontaldistance) ?
