An aeroplane is flying in horizontal direction with velocity u at a height h. How far from the target, should the bomb be released from it so as to hit the target?
Let the aeroplane be flying at height h in horizontal direction with velocity u.
Let the bomb be dropped from O to hit the target.
Let t be time taken by the bomb to reach the ground at target.
Distance travelled by bomb in horizontal direction in time t is,
Bomb must be dropped at a distance=
from the target.
