A supply plane needs to drops a package of food to scientists working on a glacier in Greenland. The plane flies 116m above the glacier at a speeds of 170m/s. How far short of the target should it drop the package?

2. Relevant equations

Kinematic equations

3. The attempt at a solution

As with my other two posts, I know what I need to find. I just don't know how to go about finding it. I'm so confused about finding the components of the velocity without a given angle.
