• Vertical rod The vertical one-meter-long rod casts a shadow 150 cm long. Calculate the height of a column whose shadow is 36 m long at the same time.
• The straight The straight path rises by 72 cm every 3 m of its length. How many meters will it climb to 350 m?
• Inclined plane The body stays on an inclined plane and exerts a compressive force of 70N on it. Find the angle between the inclined plane and the horizontal if a gravitational force of 100N acts on the body.
• Chimney and tree Calculate the height of the factory chimney, which casts a shadow 6.5 m long in the afternoon. At the same time, a 6 m high tree standing near it casts a shadow 25 dm long.
• The chimney The chimney casts a shadow 45 meters long. The one-meter-long rod standing perpendicular to the ground has a shadow 90 cm long. Calculate the height of the chimney. Miro stands under a tree and watching its shadow and shadow of the tree. Miro is 180 cm tall and its shade is 1.5 m long. The shadow of the tree is three times as long as Miro's shadow. How tall is the tree in meters?
