A plane drops a hamper of medical supplies
from a height of 4190 m during a practice run
over the ocean. The plane’s horizontal veloc-
ity was 111 m/s at the instant the hamper
was dropped.
What is the magnitude of the overall ve-
locity of the hamper at the instant it strikes
the surface of the ocean? The acceleration of
gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
Answer in units of m/s
