A package falls from an airplane in level flight at constant speed. If air resistance can be neglected, how does the motion of the package look to the pilot.
The package appears to travel in the shape of a parabola.
The package appears to fall straight downward.
The package appears to travel backward.
The package appears to fall backward and downward.

A paintball is shot horizontally in the positive x direction. At time Trianglet after the ball is shot, it is 4 cm to the right and 4cm below it’s starting point. At time 2trianglet, what is the position of the ball relative to it’s starting point. Ignore air resistance.
12 cm to the right and 16 cm below
8cm to the right and 8 cm below
12 cm to the right and 8 cm below
8 cm to the right and 16 cm below

  4. 2nd ... horizontal velocity is not a factor
    ... how long to fall from 64.8 m? ... gravitational acceleration

    3rd ... package maintains same horizontal speed as plane

    4th ... horizontal velocity is constant , vertical is accelerated by gravity
    ... horizontal displacement is vs. t , vertical displacement is vs. t^2

  6. 2nd ... h = 1/2 g t^2 ... 64.8 = 4.9 * t^2

    3rd ... package stays in same horizontal position relative to plane
    ... pilot sees it drop straight down

    4th ... the time is doubled
    ... so horizontal is doubled , and vertical is quadrupled (doubled squared)
