Map - climb

On the map of High Tatras in scale 1:11000 are cable car stations in the Tatranska Lomnica and in the Skalnate Pleso with distance 354.6 mm. Altitude of this stations are 949 m and 1760 m.

What is average angle of climb of this cable car track?

Correct result:

α =  11.75 °

Solution:

Δh=1760949=811 m Δx=354.611000/1000=3900.6 m  tanα=ΔhΔx  α=arctanΔhΔx=arctan8113900.6 α=11.75=114443"
