A kite is flying at a height of 75 metres from the ground level, attached to a string inclined at 60° to the horizontal. Find the length of the string to the nearest metre.
Let the length of the wire = l (m)
Sin 60° =
l = ⇒ ⇒ 50√3 ⇒ 86.6 m.
Therefore length of string is 86.6 m.

PREVIOUSAn electric pole is 10 m high. A steel wire tied to top of the pole is affixed at a point on the ground to keep the pole up right. If the wire makes an angle of 45° with the horizontal through the foot of the pole, find the length of the wire.NEXTThe length of a string between a kite and a point on the ground is 90 metres. If the string makes an angle with the ground level such that tan=15/8, how high is the kite? Assume that there is no slack in the string.
