Question

A skydiver deploys his parachute 820 m above his desired landing spot..

A skydiver deploys his parachute when he is 820 meters directly above his desired landing spot. He then falls through the air at a steady 5.9 m/s There is a breezeblowing to the west at 1.8 m/s.

At what angle with respect to vertical does he fall?

By what distance will he miss his desired landing spot?

I'm pretty sure there's a triangle involved in the solving of this problem, but I'm not sure how that would work with the velocity values given…

I would like this answer by Monday night please, if at all possible, thanks in advance!
