**Reiny**, Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 12:33pmI will do of these,

for 135° :

assume the axle is 20.5 above the ground

height above axle:

sin135 = h/20.5

h = 20.5sin135 = appr 14.5 m

so height above the ground = 20.5 + 14.5 = 35

for 315°

height from axle :

sin 315 = h/20.5

h = 20.5sin135 = appr - 14.5

notice the position would be BELOW the axle

so height above ground = 20.5 - 14.5 = 6 m
