A plane is flying horizontally with a constant speed of 55 .0 m/s when it drops a

rescue capsule. The capsule lands on the ground 12.0 s later.

c) How would your answer to part b) iii change if the constant speed of the plane is

increased? Explain.

Answer:therefore horizontal displacement changes increasing with linear velocity

Explanation:Since the plane flies horizontally, the only speed that exists is

v₀ₓ = 55.0 m / s

the time is the time it takes to reach the floor, which we can find because the speed on the vertical axis is zero

y =y₀ + v₀ t – ½ g t2

0 = I₀ + 0 – ½ g t2

t = √ 2y₀o / g

time is that we use to calculate the x-axis displacement

The distance it travels to reach the floor is

x = v t

x = 55 12

x = 660 m

When the speed horizontally the time remains the same and 120

x ’= v’ 12

therefore horizontal displacement changes increasing with linear velocity
