The angle of elevation of the top of a 36 m tall tower from the initial position of a person on the ground was 60 deg. She walked away in a manner that the foot of the tower, her initial position and the final position were all in the same straight line. The angle of elevation of the top of the tower from her final position was 30 deg. How much did she walk from her initial position?
The angle of elevation of a bird from a point 60 m above the water in a pond is 30°. The angle of depression of the reflection of the bird under the water from the same point is 60°. Find the height of the bird in metres hovering over the pond.
The height of a light house is 20 mts above sea level. The angle of depression (from the top of the lighthouse) of a ship in the sea is 30 deg. What is the distance of the ship from the foot of the light house?
A balloon is connected to a meteorological station by a cable of length 130 m, inclined at 60 deg to the horizontal. Find the height of the balloon from the ground. Assume that there is no slack in cable.
