## What will happen if a pilot drops a package when the plane is directly over the target?

The package will miss the target. The horizontal velocity of the plane and package cause the package to act like a projectile when released. It will continue to move horizontally while it drops.

## When the pilot drops a package and it reaches the ground what is the plane’s horizontal position ignoring air resistance?

The airplane will be directly above the package when it hits the ground.

When an object is dropped from an Aeroplane moving horizontally with constant velocity?

If a bomb is dropped from an aeroplane moving horizontally with constant velocity, then the bomb appears to move along a vertical straight line for the pilot of the plane.

### Where will the crate be relative to the plane when it hits the ground?

Ignoring air resistance, where will the plane be relative to the crate when the crate hits the ground? The plane will be directly over the crate since they will both have the same horizontal velocity.

### Why would a package dropped from a plane flying at a high altitude would land under the plane the moment it hits the ground?

As the package falls, it undergoes a vertical acceleration; that is, there is a change in its vertical velocity. In the absence of horizontal forces, there would be a constant velocity in the horizontal direction. This explains why the package would be located directly under the plane from which it is dropped.

What is the result a location of the plane neglecting air resistance when the pilot drops a package and hits the ground?

If the air resistance is neglected then the bomb has constant horizontal velocity. The acceleration due to gravity causes its parabolic motion to the ground but the horizontal distance covered by the bomb is equal to the horizontal distance covered by the plane.

#### Which location will help Aeroplane pilots drop aid packages at a specific location?

Parachutes are usually made out of light, strong fabric, originally silk, now most commonly nylon. They are typically dome-shaped, but vary, with rectangles, inverted domes, and others found. A variety of loads are attached to parachutes, including people, food, equipment, space capsules, and bombs.

#### When a ball is dropped from a flying Aeroplane its path of motion is?

a straight vertical path in the downward direction.

When a bomb is dropped from an Aeroplane?

We know that when the bomb is dropped from a moving plane, the bomb will have a velocity in the horizontal direction. Hence the bomb will not hit the target; it will fall at a distance ‘x’ from the target. We can say that the initial velocity of the bomb in the vertical direction will be zero.

## Why Aeroplane is not a projectile?

Airplanes, guided missiles, and rocket-propelled spacecraft are sometimes also said to follow a trajectory. Since these devices are acted upon by the lift of wings and the thrust of engines in addition to the force of gravity, they are not really projectiles.

## What forces are acting on the package after it has been dropped from the plane and is in free fall through the air?

As the package falls, it undergoes a vertical acceleration; that is, there is a change in its vertical velocity. This vertical acceleration is attributed to the downward force of gravity which acts upon the package.

What is the initial velocity of an object dropped from a plane?

If an object is merely dropped (as opposed to being thrown) from an elevated height, then the initial velocity of the object is 0 m/s. If an object is projected upwards in a perfectly vertical direction, then it will slow down as it rises upward.

### What happens when a package is dropped from a plane?

When dropped from the plane, the package already possessed a horizontal motion. The package will maintain this state of horizontal motion unless acted upon by a horizontal force. An object in motion will continue in motion with the same speed and in the same direction

### What happens when an object is dropped from a plane?

When dropped from the plane, the package already possessed a horizontal motion. The package will maintain this state of horizontal motion unless acted upon by a horizontal force. An object in motion will continue in motion with the same speed and in the same direction…

Is there a horizontal force acting on the package?

Many would insist that there is a horizontal force acting upon the package since it has a horizontal motion. This is simply not the case. The horizontal motion of the package is the result of its own inertia. When dropped from the plane, the package already possessed a horizontal motion.

#### How to calculate the displacement of a package?

Just divide the displacement (3000m) by a = -9,8m/s^2 and it give you the time it took the package to hit the ground in s^2. Then take the square root to obtain…

Now you have the altitude and the ground distance so you can calculate your displacement as you initially tried.
