## Homework Statement

A helicopter is flying in a straight line over a level field at a constant speed of 6.8

*m/s*and at a constant altitude of 9.4

*m*. A package is ejected horizontally from the helicopter with an initial velocity of 12.0

*m/s*relative to the helicopter, and in a direction opposite the helicopter's motion. Find the initial velocity of the package relative to the ground.

What is the horizontal distance between the helicopter and the package at the instant the package strikes the ground?

What angle does the velocity vector of the package make with the ground at the instant before impact, as seen from the ground?

## Homework Equations

Initial Velocity:

Vhg = 6.8 m/s

Vph = -12.0 m/s

Vpg = -5.20 m/s

Y = 9.8 m

## The Attempt at a Solution

I was thinking that I could use a kinematic equation to solve for this question but I think it is much simpler than that.
