Height of second tree = 80 m

∴ AB = (80 – h)m

Distance between both trees = 60 m

**Question. A person standing on the bank of a river, observes that the angle of elevation of the top of the tree standing on the opposite bank is 60o. When he retreats 20 m from the bank, he finds the angle of elevation to be 30 ^{o}. Find the height of the tree and the breadth of the river. **

**Solution.**Let the height be ‘h’ m and breadth of river be ‘b’ m.

**Question. If a pole 6m high throws shadow of 2 m, then find the angle of elevation of the sun. ****Solution.**

given,

height of the pole = 6m

Let AB is pole and BC is its shadow

**Question. In fig. AB is 6 m high pole and CD is a ladder inclined at an angle of 60 to the horizontal and reaches up to a point of pole. If AD = 2.54 m, find the length of the ladder, (use √3 = 1.73) **

**Solution.**

**Question. A kite is flying at a height of 60 m above the ground. The string attached to the kite is temporarily tied to a point on the ground. The inclination of the string with the ground is 60 ^{o}. Find the length of the string assuming that there is no slack in the string. **

**Solution.**Let A be the kite and CA be the string attached to the kite such that its one end is tied

to a point C on the ground. The inclination of the string CA with the ground is 60

^{o}.

In ΔABC , we are given that ∠C = 60° and perpendicular AB = 60 m and we have

to find hypotenuse AC. So, we use the trigonometric ratio involving perpendicular and hypotenuse.

**Question. A person observed the angle of elevation of the top of a tower is 30o. He walked 50 m towards the foot of the tower along level ground and found the angle of elevation of the top of the tower as 60o. Find the height of the tower. Solution.**

**Question. The elevation of a tower at a station A due north of is α and at a station B due west of A is β prove that the height of the tower is AB sin α sinβ /√sin2 α – sin2 β . ****Solution.** Let OP be the tower and let A be a point due north of the tower OP and let B be the point due west of A. Such that ∠OAP = α and ∠OBP = β . Let h be the height of the tower.

In right-angled triangle OAP and OBP, we have

**Question. A kite is flying at a height of 30 m from the ground. The length of the string from kite to the ground is 60 m. Assuming that there is no slack in the string, find the angle of elevation of the kite at the ground. Solution.**

**Question. From an aeroplane vertically above a straight horizontal plane, the angles of depression of two consecutive kilometer stones on the opposite sides of the aeroplane are found to be α and . Show that the height of the aeroplane is tan α tan β /tan α + tan β . ****Solution. **

Let us suppose that aeroplane is at A

Suppose B and C are two consecutive kilometre stones such that

**Question. The horizontal distance between two poles is 15 m. The angle of depression of the top of first pole as seen from the top of second pole is 30o. If the height of the first pole is 24 m, find the height of the hsecond pole.[Use √3 = 1.732] Solution.**

**Question. A ladder, leaning against a wall, makes an angle of 60° with the horizontal.If the foot of the ladder is 2.5 m away from the wall, then find the length of the ladder. Solution.**

**Question. A man standing on the deck of a ship, which is 10 m above water level, observes the angle of elevation of the top of a hill as 60° and angle of depression of the base of the hill as 30°. Find the distance of the hill from the ship and height of the hill. Solution.**
