Spymaster Paul, flying a constant 215 km/h horizontally in a low flying helicopter, wants to drop secret documents into his contact's open car which is traveling 155 km/h on a level highway 78.0 m below. At what angle ( to the horizontal) should the car be in his sights when the packet is released?
