An observer on the ground is x meters from the base of the launch pad of...
a. x/tan q
b. x/ sin q
c. x tan q
d. x sin q
e. x cos q
pls 30 points
x tan q
Refer the attached figure
An observer on the ground is x meters from the base of the launch pad of a rocket i.e. BC = x
The height of the rocket is AB
The observer sees its tip at an angle of q° from the horizontal.i.e.∠ACB = q°
We will use trigonometric ratio
So, the height of the rocket is x tan q.
So, Option C is correct.
Hence the tip of the rocket is x tan q far above the ground
the answer is c
