**Calculus test tomorrow**

A plane flying with a constant speed of 24 km/min passes over a ground radar station at an altitude of 5km and climbs at an angle of 35 degrees. At what rate, in km/min, is the distance from the plane to the radar station increasing 4 minutes later? I know side A=5 but how do ...

**physics**

A small steel ball bearing with a mass of 28.0 g is on a short compressed spring. When aimed vertically and suddenly released, the spring sends the bearing to a height of 1.25 m. Calculate the horizontal distance the ball would travel if the same spring were aimed 34.0 deg ...

**Calc**

An airplane is flying at a speed of 350 mi/h at an altitude of one mile and passes directly over a radar station at time t=0. a) Express the horizontal distance d (in miles) that the plane has flown as a function of t. I really don't know... would it be something like d= t . a...
