A plane is flying in a straight line at an unchanging height and unchanging speed. The pilot must
drop an object onto a target in front of the plane. At what angle must the pilot see the target at the
moment of dropping the object? At that moment, what is the distance between the target and the
plane’s projection onto the ground? Disregard air resistance.
