## Homework Statement

A plane flies at 900m and has to deliver a package. It flies at 180 m/s North at 15° below the horizontal. The ships velocity is 40 m/s and it is travelling due north. At what horizontal distance from the ship must the package be dropped for it to land on the ship?

## Homework Equations

I know to use the equations of motion but I don't understand the problem.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Is the height of the plane changing?

The ship and the plane only have a velocity in one direction, where as the package once released has velocity in two (x and y) right?

How do I even begin to set this problem up?
