An Alaskan rescue plane traveling 36 m/s drops a package of emergency rations from a height of 162 m to a stranded party of explorers. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2
Where does the package strike the ground relative to the point directly below where it was released?
Answer in units of m

What is the horizontal component of the velocity just before it hits?
Answer in units of m/s

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

    h=gt²/2
    t=sqrt(2h/g)
    L=v•t=36•sqrt(2•162/9.8)=…
    v(x)= 36 m/s
    v(y)=gt=g•sqrt(2h/g)=...
