A stone with a mass m is dropped from an airplane that has a horizontal velocity v at a
height h above a lake. If air resistance is neglected, the horizontal distance R from the point
on the lake directly below the point of release to the point where the stone strikes the water
is given by which formula?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The kinematic equation in the vertical direction is,

Step 2

The horizontal dis...
