Question

# An airplane is flying at a height of $$1960\ m$$ in the horizontal direction with a velocity of $$360\ km/hr$$. It drops a bomb. The bomb strikes a point on the ground, then the time took $$t$$ by the bomb to reach the ground is:

A
202sec
B
20sec
C
102sec
D
10sec

Solution

## The correct option is B $$20\sec$$As the bomb is dropped so its initial vertical velocity will be $$zero.$$ so time taken by bomb will be given by $$h=0+\dfrac{1}{2}gt^2$$or $$t=\sqrt{\dfrac{2h}{g}}=\sqrt{\dfrac{2\times 1960}{9.8}}=20second$$Physics
