1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The height of a helicopter above the ground is given by h = 3.00t^2, where h is in meters and t is in seconds. After 2.00s the helicopter releases a small mailbag. How long after its release does the mailbag reach the ground 2. Relevant equations Xf = Xi + VxT + .5at^2 3. The attempt at a solution h = 24 a = -9.8 Vi = 6.00t^2 at 2 = 24 m/s not sure about this 0 = 24 + 24t + .5(-9.8)t^2 t = 5.7 Did I go about this right? Please help.
