Question

A plane drops a package for delivery. The plane is flying horizontally at a speed of 120m/s,and the package travels 255 m horizontally during the drop. We can ignore air resistance.What is the package’s vertical displacement during the drop?

Explanation:

I just did the Khan Academy and that was the answer, not the one provided by that one person. :)))

Package’s vertical displacement(s) = 22.12 meter

Explanation:

Given:

Speed of plane = 120 m/s

Total distance = 255 m

Find:

Package’s vertical displacement(s)

Computation:

Time taken = Distance / Speed

Time taken = Total distance / Speed of plane

Time taken = 255 / 120

Time taken = 2.125 s

Acceleration due to gravity(g) = 9.8 m/s²

Initial velocity (u) = 0

So,

Package’s vertical displacement(s) = ut + (1/2)gt²

Package’s vertical displacement(s) = (0)(2.125) + (1/2)(9.8)(2.125)²

Package’s vertical displacement(s) = 22.12 meter
