Homework Help: Physics

Posted by <3 on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 1:15am.

A small mailbag is released from a helicopter that is descending steadily at 2.36 m/s.
(a) After 5.00 s, what is the speed of the mailbag?
(b) How far is it below the helicopter?
(c) What are your answers to parts (a) and (b) if the helicopter is rising steadily at 2.36 m/s?

I got the correct speeds for both situations, but incorrect distances (significant figures matter).
(a) v=51.4 m/s (c) v=46.6 m/s
