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 directly above the package. What is the horizontal distance from the release point to the impact point?
Answer in units of m.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

h=gt^2

4840=9.8t^2

t=22.22

d=217*22

=4822.43m



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
