## Homework Statement

a plane, traveling at 200 m/s in the X direction, drops a missile which has a constant acceleration of 7 m/s^2 at an angle 10 degrees below horizontal. If the plane is 1250 m high when it fires, how far (in the x direction) from where it was fired will the missile come down?

## Homework Equations

?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have absolutely no idea how to start this problem... could I possibly break the 7m/s^2 into y and x components using cosine, sine and the angle of 350 (10 degrees below the horizontal)?
