A helicopter carrying dr. evil takes off with a constant upward acceleration of \(\displaystyle{5.0}\ \frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\). Secret agent austin powers jumps on just as the helicopter lifts off the ground. Afterthe two men struggle for 10.0 s, powers shuts off the engineand steps out of the helicopter. Assume that the helicopter is infree fall after its engine is shut off and ignore effects of airresistance.
a) What is the max height above ground reached by the helicopter?
b) Powers deploys a jet pack strapped on his back 7.0s after leaving the helicopter, and then he has a constant downward acceleration with magnitude 2.0 m/s2. how far is powers above the ground when the helicopter crashes into the ground.
