An airplane with a speed of 59.6 m/s is climbing upward at an angle of 40° counterclockwise from the positive x axis. When the plane's altitude is 600 m the pilot releases a package.
(a) Calculate the distance along the ground, measured from a point directly beneath the point of release, to where the package hits the earth.
(b) Determine the angle of the velocity vector of the package just before impact.
