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.
The horizontal distance from the release point to the impact point is 4821.71 m. A second package is thrown downward from the plane with a vertical speed v1 = 56 m/s.What is the magnitude of the total velocity of the package. Answer in units m/s

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

4840=(x*0.175)+(0.5*9.8*0.175^2)

the magnitude is 122m/s

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