# Mast shadow

The mast has a 13 m long shadow on a slope rising from the mast foot in the direction of the shadow angle at an angle of 15°. Determine the height of the mast if the sun above the horizon is at an angle of 33°. Use the law of sines.

### Correct answer:

Tips for related online calculators

The line slope calculator is helpful for basic calculations in analytic geometry. The coordinates of two points in the plane calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of the segment, intersections of the coordinate axes, etc.
