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.

  • Maths-Trigonometry -

    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.
