Answer to Question #24098 in Geometry for Matthew Williams

Question #24098
A rescue plane wants to drop supplies to isolated mountain climbers on a rocky ridge 235m below? Part (a) asks: If the plane is traveling horizontally with a speed of 61.1m/s, how far in advance of the recipients (horizontal distance) must the goods be dropped? I got 423m, which is the correct answer. Part (b) asks: Suppose, instead, that the plane releases the supplies a horizontal distance of 425m in advance of the mountain climbers. What vertical velocity (up or down) should the supplies be given so that they arrive precisely at the climbers' position?
