The bomber

From what distance in front of the target must a parachute load be dropped from an aircraft flying at an altitude of 1260 m if it slopes at a speed of 5.6 m/s and at the same time is carried in the direction of movement at a speed of 12 m/s. What is the direct distance of the aircraft from the target? (Calculate the fall time first).

Correct answer:

x =  2979.5302 m
x2 =  2700 m

Step-by-step explanation:

h=1260 m v1=5.6 m/s v2=12 m/s  a>0 v=at h=21 a t2  a=0,v=const h=vt t=h/v1=1260/5.6=225 s  v2=v12+v22 v=v12+v22=5.62+12213.2424 m/s  x=v t=13.2424 225=180 274=2979.5302 m
x2=v2 t=12 225=2700 m
