A package is dropped form an airplane travelling horizontally at constant speed. Friction is negligible. One second later a second package is dropped.
a) THe distance between the two packages will remain constant as they fall b) The distance between the two packages will steadily increase as they fall c) The second package will hit the ground more than one second after the first hits d) The horizontal distance between the two packages will decrease as they fall.
The answer is b, can someone explain why?
I thought that answer is going to be a, because it makes logical sense for me.
