A log is floating on swiftly moving water. A stone is dropped from rest from a 75-m high bridge and lands on the log as it passes under the bridge. If the log moves with a constant speed of 5.0 m/s, what is the horizontal distance between the log and the bridge when the stone is released?

2. Relevant equations

Not really sure how to start off the problem, would appreciate if anyone could help me on the problem.

3. The attempt at a solutionI tried using the equation VF^2=Vi+2a(Xf-Xi)
