A supply plane needs to drop a package of food to scientists working on a glacier in Greenland. The plane flies 92 m above the glacier at a speed of 135 m/s. How far short of the target should it drop the package?

    How long to fall 92 m
    92 = (1/2) 9.8 t^2
    t = 4.333 seconds
    Fly horizontal how far in 4.333 seconds:
    135*4.333 = 585 meters
