The cable car

The cable car is 2610 m long and rises at an angle of 35°. Calculate the height difference between the lower and upper station of the cable car.

Correct answer:

y =  1497.0345 m

Step-by-step explanation:

c=2610 m A=35  sinA=y/c y=c sinA=c sin35 =2610 sin35 =2610 0.573576=1497.034=1497.0345 m
