Aircraft

The plane flies at altitude 6500 m. At the time of first measurement was to see the elevation angle of 21° and second measurement of the elevation angle of 46°.

Calculate the distance the plane flew between the two measurements.

Result

x =  10656.1 m

See also our right triangle calculator. Do you want to convert length units? Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation. Try conversion angle units angle degrees, minutes, seconds, radians, grads.
