Question: the helicopter flying at a constant horizontal speed of 30...

Question details

The helicopter flying at a constant horizontal speed of 30 m/s at an altitude of 100 m drops a package to the camp. If the wind produces a horizontal resistance of ax- -2 m/s to the package, determine a, an, and the radius of curvature ρ when the package hits the ground. Ans (a) an-6.0053 m/s 2, at-8.0108 m/s 2, rho-399.94 m V-3oms Ans for (b) and (c) will be posted later. resistance (b) Find the horizontal distance x where the package lands. (c) Find at, an, and rho when the package is still 40 m above the ground level.
