A tree breaks due to storm and the broken part bends so that the top of the tree touches the ground making an angle of 30° with the ground. The distance between the foot of the tree to the point where the top touches the ground is 8 m. Find the height of the tree.
let the broken part be DB.
Distance from the foot of the tree and point C is 8 cm.
BC = 8 cmHeight of tree = Height of broken part + height of the remaining tree
= DC + DB
tan 30° =
Cos 30° =
Height of tree =
Height of tree = 8√3 m

PREVIOUSOn a horizontal plane there is a vertical tower with a flag pole on the top of the tower. At a point 9 metres away from the foot of the tower the angle of elevation of the top and bottom of the flag pole are 60° and 30° respectively. Find the height of the tower and the flag pole mounted on it.NEXTFrom a point P on the ground the angle of elevation of a 10 m tall building is 30°. A flag is hoisted at the top of the building and the angle of elevation of the top of the flag-staff from P is 45°. Find the length of the flag-staff and the distance of the building from the point P. (Take ).
