The pilot of an airplane traveling 250km/h wants to drop supplies to flood victims isolated on a patch of land 190m below.

  • physics PLEASE HELP! -

    how long to drop 190 m?
    190 = (1/2) (9.81)t^2
    t = 6.22 seconds
    how far horizontal in 6.22 s ?
    (250,000 m/3600 s)6.22 s = 432 meters
    so drop 432 meters before reaching target zenith
