During natural calamities one of the very crucial activity to save people is to serve relief packages to the affected areas. Consider a plane is moving with a constant speed at an elevated height above the Earth's surface. In the course of its flight, the plane drops a relief package from its luggage compartment. This paper/project focuses on determining the horizontal distance the package travel measured from the releasing point to the point it hits the ground and the consumed time. How can the motion of the package be described?
