Tree

How tall is the tree that observed in the visual angle of 52°? If I stand 5 m from the tree and eyes are two meters above the ground.

Correct result:

x =  8.4 m

Solution:

x=2+5tan(52)=8.4 m



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
