An airplane is flying horizontally with speed 1300 km/h (360 m/s ) when an engine falls off. Neglecting air resistance, assume it takes 35 s for the engine to hit the ground

A)Find the altitude of the airplane. (Use g=9.8m/s2.).

B)Find the horizontal distance the airplane engine falls.

C)If the airplane somehow continues to fly as if nothing had happened, where is the engine relative to the airplane at the moment the engine hits the ground?

Step 1

Given data:

Horizontal speed of the plan, ux = 1300 km/h = 360 m/s

Time taken to reach the ground, t = 35 s

Step 2

(a)

The altitude of the plan can be calculated by the second equation of the kinematics:

Step 3

(b)

The horizontal distance of the airplane:

...
