HORIZONTAL THROW IN VACUUM
After a flood, a group of people were left in one area. A rescue plane, flying horizontally at a height of 720 m and maintaining a speed of v = 50m / s, approaches the scene for a packet of medicines and food to be launched to isolated people. How far in the horizontal direction should the package be dropped so that it falls with people? Disregard air resistance and adopt g = 10m / s².
