Youre in an airplane that flies horizontally with speed 940km/h (260m/s) when the engine falls off. Neglecting air resisitence, assume it takes 27 s for the engine to hit the ground.

Part A: Find the height of the airplane.

Part B:Find the horizontal distance that the aircraft engine falls

Part C: If the airplane somehow continues to fly as if nothing had happened, what is the distance between the engine and the airplane at the moment the engine hits the ground?

Step 1

(a)

The engine is under free fall and its initial vertical velocity is zero. The vertical height of the airplane is found using the equation,

Step 2

(b)

The aircraft engine travels with the same horizontal speed as that of the air plane. The horizontal distance travelled by the engine can be found using the equation,

Step 3

(C)

The airplane and the engine moves horizontally with the same speed so that when the engine hits the ground, the airplane will b e directly abo...
