A hockey player skates down the ice at an angle of 34° to a line crossing the width of the rink. If he skates 14 m, how far has he travelled down the length of the ice toward the goal?

• physycs -

your use of the words "down" is confusing.

I think you mean the skate is skating at an angle 34deg to the width dimension, and you want to know the distance perpendicular to the width.

sin34=distance/14

14 *sin34= distance If I understood you correctly.
