An airplane is flying with a velocity of 85.0 m/s at an angle of 19.0 degrees above the horizontal. When the plane is a distance 106 m directly above a dog that is standing on level ground, a suitcase drops out of the luggage compartment.

2. Relevant equations

How far from the dog will the suitcase land? You can ignore air resistance.

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted to use Y-Yinitial = Voy(t) - 1/2(g)(t^2)

I solved for t and i got t = 4.651 s.

That answer was incorrect.

I then tried using Vx = (85m/s)(cos19) = 80.37

Vy = (85m/s)(sin19) = 27.67

I then tried adding them using V = sqrt{(80.1^2) - (27.7^2)} = 75.16 m/s

I then did R = Vox(t) but the answer I got wasn't correct.

Help!
