Anyone good at physics?

1) A helicopter, ascending vertically at a constant rate of 15.0 m/s, releases a package at an instant when the helicopter is 500.0 m above the ground. The helicopter continues to rise at a constant 15.0 m/s after the package is released. a) What is the vertical distance between the helicopter and the package when... show more 1) A helicopter, ascending vertically at a constant rate of 15.0 m/s, releases a package at an instant when the helicopter is 500.0 m above the ground. The helicopter continues to rise at a constant 15.0 m/s after the package is released.

a) What is the vertical distance between the helicopter and the package when the package is at its maximum height
above the ground?

b) How many seconds elapse between the release of the package and its impact with the ground?
