An airplane with a speed of 13 m/s is climbing upward at an angle of 48° counterclockwise from the positive x axis. When the plane's altitude is 720 m the pilot releases a package.
(a) Calculate the distance along the ground, measured from a point directly beneath the point of release, to where the package hits the earth.

(b) Determine the angle of the velocity vector of the package just before impact.
2° clockwise from the positive x axis
