Kites

Boys run kite on a cable of 68 meters long. What is the kite altitude, if the angle from the horizontal plane is 72°?

Result

h =  65 m

Solution:

l=68 m sinA=h:l  h=l sin(72 rad)=l sin(72 π180 )=68 sin(72 3.1415926180 )=64.67184=65 ml=68 \ \text{m} \ \\ \sin A=h:l \ \\ \ \\ h=l \cdot \ \sin( 72 ^\circ \rightarrow\ \text{rad} )=l \cdot \ \sin( 72 ^\circ \cdot \ \dfrac{ \pi }{ 180 } \ )=68 \cdot \ \sin( 72 ^\circ \cdot \ \dfrac{ 3.1415926 }{ 180 } \ )=64.67184=65 \ \text{m}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
