An Alaskan rescue plane traveling 35 m/s drops a package of emergency rations from?
a height of 142 m to a stranded party of explorers.The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2.Where does the package strike the ground relative to the point directly below where it was released?Answer in units of m.
Part 2. What is the horizontal component of the velocity just before it hits? Answer in units in m/s
Part 3.What is the vertical component of the velocity just before it hits? (Choose upward as the positive vertical direction)Answer in units of m/s

since the initial vertical velocity is zero,
h = ½gt^2
t = √(2h/g) = 5.38 sec
x = v*t = 35m/sec * 5.38sec = 188 m

distance = 1/2 * a * time^2. find the time.
Distance forward the package moves (neglecting air resistance) = time * horizontal speed.
