## Homework Statement

A package is dropped at time t = 0 from a helicopter that is ascending steadily at a speed vi.

What is the speed of the package in terms of V[itex]_{i}[/itex], g, and t?

## Homework Equations

V (t) = V[itex]_{o}[/itex] + -9.8 t

## The Attempt at a Solution

I thought it was the same as the normal equation for velocity such as stated above but with the different variables substituted for example:

|V| = V[itex]_{i}[/itex] + gt

except i got the answer wrong, then i tried putting a negative sign on the v[itex]_{i}[/itex] part but still got it wrong...help would be greatly appreciated.
