An airplane traveling a constant 100.0 m/s is to drop supplies to flood victims isolated on a patch of land 200.0 m below. A) The supplies should be dropped how many seconds before the plane is directly overhead? B) What is the distance of the plane away from being directly overhead of the flood victims in which it should drop the package?
