An aeroplane is moving with horizontal velocity u at a height h. The velocity of a packet dropped from it on the earth's surface will be

\[(a)\;\sqrt {u^2+2gh} \quad (b)\;\sqrt {2gh} \quad (c)\;2gh \quad(d)\;\sqrt {u^2-2gh} \]

Can you answer this question?

Initially the pocket has only horizontal velocity equal to u
When it reaches the ground it has horizontal velocity u and vertical velocity $\sqrt{2gh}$
Therefore resultant velocity $=\sqrt {u^2+2gh}$
Hence a is the correct answer
