Mast

Mast has 13 m long shadow on a slope rising from the mast foot in the direction of the shadow angle at angle 13.3°. Determine the height of the mast, if the sun above the horizon is at angle 45°12'.

Correct answer:

v =  17.65 m

Step-by-step explanation:

l=13 m A=13.3 ° B=45.2 °  sin(A)=hl h=l sinA°=l sin13.3° =13 sin13.3° =13 0.23005=2.99065 m  x=l cosA°=l cos13.3° =13 cos13.3° =13 0.973179=12.65133 m  tan(A+B)=h+vx v=x tan((A+B)° rad)h=x tan((A+B)° π180 )h=12.651325346102 tan((13.3+45.2)° 3.1415926180 )2.9906465834454=17.65=17.65 m
