(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A plane drops a package from a height of 3230 m. The plane's horizontal velocity was 110 m/s at the instant the package was dropped. What is the magnitude of the overall velocity of the hamper at the instant it touches the ground?

2. d=vo(t) + 1/2at^2

3. dx

vx 110

t 25.7

vfY

voY 0

aY -9.8

dY -3230

t 25.7

I found the time from the equation above. How would you find the overall velocity, and then how would you find the magnitude of the overall velocity?
