A submarine is traveling parallel to the surface of the water of the water 492 feet below the surface. The submarine begins a constant ascent to the surface so that it will emerge on the surface after traveling 3974 feet from the point of its initial ascent.
What angle of ascent did the submarine make?
What horizontal distance did the submarine travel during its ascent?
