The cable car

The cable car has a length of 3,5 kilometers and an angle of climb of 30 degrees. What is the altitude difference between the Upper and Lower stations?

Correct answer:

y =  1750 m

Step-by-step explanation:

c=3.5 km m=3.5 1000  m=3500 m A=30 °  sinA=y/c  A1=A° rad=A° π180 =30° 3.1415926180 =0.5236=π/6  y=c sin(A1)=3500 sin(0.5236)=1750 m
