"A helicopter is flying horizontally at 8.1 m/s and an altitude of 16 m when a package of emergency medical supplies is ejected horizontally backward with a speed of 13 m/s relative to the helicopter. Ignoring air resistance, what is the horizontal distance between the package and the helicopter when the package hits the ground?"
Any help at how to tackle this problem would be appreciated. I know it involves using a string of kinematic equations, but I'm having trouble with the velocity.
