Time taken =√2h/g = √2*4.9/9.8= 1Given range = 10U*t= 10U*1 = 10U = 10It leaves plane with velocity 10 m/s

It should be 10m/s because x=4.9t² gives t= 1s. Hence the ball would require 1s to fall if it were to fall freely under gravity. The same would be the time required to move horizontally. Thus the equation v=s/t gives v= 10m/s.
