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°?

Correct 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 )=65=65 m



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
