hi, im new to this forum and i have been having great difficulties with this question...

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An airplane with a speed of 81.6 m/s is climbing upward at an angle of 44.7 ° with respect to the horizontal. When the plane's altitude is 944 m, the pilot releases a package. 1) Calculate the distance along the ground, measured from a point directly beneath the point of release, to where the package hits the earth. 2) Relative to the ground, determine the angle of the velocity vector of the package just before impact.

2. Relevant equations
any possible kinematics equation

Anyone have any ideas, it wud extremely helpful

thanks

yes i think so

the 4 equations are
