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 6820 m.
A second package is thrown downward from
the plane with a vertical speed v1 = 56 m/s.
Whats the magnitude of the total velocity
of the package at the moment it is thrown. Answer in m/s. Round 5 decimal places

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

the total velocity is 217m/s ex + 56m/s ez  the magnitude of the total velocity is found by using Pythagorena

V = sqrt(217^2+56^2) =  224.1 m/s

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