a plane at an altitude of 625 m is traveling at 95 m/s and drops a care package in inhabitants of a remote island in the south pacific.
a) how long will it take the package to hit the ground?
b)how far before the target should the pilot release the package?
c) what velocity does the package hit the ground (vector sum)

    For the first one use h=ut;625=95*t;t=625/95
    t=6.5789s

    thank, but i figured that out.
    what about the second one?
