The pilot of an airplane, carrying a package of mail, wishes to hit recovery location A. Assume that the plane is traveling at constant speed of 200 km/hr at a constant height of 100m above the ground. What angle theta with the horizontal should the pilot's line of sight to the target make at the instant of release?

2. Relevant equations

I don't understand what equations to use, if you could help that would be awesome.

3. The attempt at a solution
