A plane is ﬂying horizontally with speed 217m/s at a height 4840 m above the ground, when a package is dropped from the plane.The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Neglecting air resistance, when the package hits the ground, the plane will be:
1. ahead of the package. 2. behind the package. 3. directly above the package.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
3. directly above the package.....In the absence of horizontal forces, there would be a constant velocity
in the horizontal direction. This explains why the package would be
located directly under the plane from which it is dropped.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
