5. A hawk flying at 15 m/s at an altitude of 180 m accidentally drops its prey. The parabolic trajectory of the falling prey is described by the equation y180- 45 until it hits the ground, where y is its height above the ground and is the horizontal distance traveled in meters. Calculate the distance traveled by the prey from the time it is dropped until the time it hits the ground. Express you answer correct to the nearest tenth...

A bomber plane is flying at a height “h” exactly level with the ground, and with a constant speed “v.” At time t = 0 the plane gently releases its payload (i.e. at the initial moment the payload is at rest with respect to the plane). Assume that after releasing the payload the plane continues to move with the same velocity as before. Answer the following questions based on this scenario. (You may use h = 490 meters and v...
