Distance 19043

Radar sees an aircraft at an altitude angle of 15°24', and the direct distance from the radar is 5545 m. At what altitude does the aircraft fly?

Correct answer:

h =  1472.51 m

Step-by-step explanation:

α=15°24=15°+6024°=15.4°=15.4 c=5545 m  sin α = h:c  h=c sinα=c sin15.4° =5545 sin15.4° =5545 0.265556=1472.51=1472.51 m
