A bomb weighing 3.7 kg is dropped from an aeroplane flying horizontally at 100 ms−1. If the plane is 1 km high, what is the horizontal distance that the bomb travels before reaching the ground?
(Take g=10 m/s2)
The correct option is D 1000√2 m
Height of the plane from the ground =1000 m
Using second equation of motion,
Horizontal distance that the bomb travels before reaching the ground
Horizontal distance covered by a body falling from from height h with initial horizontal velocity u
