A plane is flying horizontally with speed 244 m/s at a height 5670 m above the ground, when a package is thrown downward from the plane with a vertical speed v(initial) = 73 m/s.
What horizontal distance is traveled by this package?

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
Neglecting air resistance, when the package hits the ground
