An airplane traveling 1004 m above the ocean at 130 km/h is going to drop a box of supplies to shipwrecked victims below.

(a) How many seconds before the plane is directly overhead should the box be dropped?

(b) What is the horizontal distance between the plane and the victims when the box is dropped?

  1. Vo = 130km/h = 130,000m/3600s = 36.11m/sw.

    a. h = 0.5g*t^2.
    1004 = 4.9t^2, t = ?.

    b. d = Vo*t = 36.11 * t,
