Question

# An aeroplane flying horizontally at an altitude of $$490m$$ with a speed of $$180kmph$$ drops a bomb. The horizontal distance at which it hits the ground is

A
500m
B
1000m
C
250m
D
50m

Solution

## The correct option is A $$500m$$Given :   $$h = 490 \ m$$Horizontal velocity   $$u = 180 \ km/h = 180\times \dfrac{5}{18} = 50 \ m/s$$Time of flight  $$T = \sqrt{\dfrac{2h}{g}} = \sqrt{\dfrac{2\times 490}{9.8}} = 10 \ s$$Horizontal distance  $$R = uT = 50\times 10 = 500 \ m$$Physics
