Aeroplane Flying Constant Horizontal Velocity Elevation Towards Directly Earths Surface

An aeroplane is flying at a constant horizontal velocity of 600 km/hr at an elevation of 6 km towards … zig-zag path as seen by…


Correct Option (c) On a parabolic path as seen by an observer on the ground near the target Explanation:

The path of the ball appears parabolic to a observer near the target because it is at rest. But to a Pilot the path appears straight line because the horizontal velocity of aeroplane and the ball are equal, so the relative horizontal displacement is zero.
