Cable car

The cable car rises at an angle of 44° and connects the upper and lower station with an altitude difference of 1089 m. How long is an "endless" tow rope?

Correct answer:

x =  3135 m

Step-by-step explanation:

α=44  h=1089 m  sin α = h : c x = 2 c  x=sinα2 h=sin44° 2 h=sin44° 2 1089=0.6946582 1089=3135=3135 m
