A car sits in the parking lot. Above is a cargo plane, flying horizontally at 61 m/s. At the exact moment the plane is 182 m directly above the car, a crate accidentally falls from its cargo doors. Relative to the car, where will the crate land? Enter m as unit and use g = 10. m/s2.

    how long does it take to hit the ground?

    182=1/2 g t^2 solve for time t.

    then, how far does it go horizontally.
    d=61*t
