I've done this before, but it's been a long time.
Using trigonometric functions, I've been asked to solve the following problem. However, I'm at a complete loss as to how to do it. I have 5 questions similar that I know I can figure out if given an example.
A plane moving at $180$ mi/hr comes down to a $300$ ft elevation, flying straight and level. It releases a package to be caught in a net on the ground. Neglecting air friction, what should the horizontal distance between the plane and the net be at the time of release?
