1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In fighting forest fires, airplanes work in support of ground crews by dropping water on the fires. A pilot is practicing by dropping a canister of red dye, hoping to hit a target on the ground below. if the plane is flying in a horizontal path at an altitude of 86.0 m above the ground and with a speed of 69.0 m/s, at what horizontal distance from the target should the pilot release the canister? Ignore air resistance. 2. Relevant equations Any constant acceleration equation. 3. The attempt at a solution ax=0 ay=-9.80 Xo= 0 Yo=86.0 Voy=0 Vox= 69.0 Vx=69.0 Vy= y=0 x= I first found Ttotal by using the equation 0-86.0=0+.5(-9.80)(t^2). t = 4.189 seconds. then I found Vy. Vy= 0+(-9.8)(4.189) Vy= -41.052 Then I realized finding Vy was a complete waste of time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Then I tried to find x. x-0 = (69.0)(4.189)+.5(-9.8)(4.189)^2 x = 203.05 m/s? Does this look right?
