a kite is attached to a string that is 15m long. If the string makes an angle of 26 degrees to the horizontal the height of the kite is.
Draw a rt. triangle:
X = Hor. side.
Y = Ver. side = Ht. of kite.
Z = Hyp. = 15 m.
A = 26 Deg.
Y = Z*sinA = 15*sin26 = 6.58 m.
a strong gust of wind blew the kite directly above a mountain the string attached to the kite is 350 ft the string now makes a 55 degree angle on the ground calculate the height of the kite
