If an incline has a difference in height from one end to the other of 17.8 cm and has a length along the incline of 1.19 m, what is the angle that the incline makes with the horizontal reference surface?

• Physics -

cos (angle) = .178/1.19

• Physics -

So the answer is 81.4? My online homework says that it is wrong?

• Physics -

arcsin(.178/1.19)=8.603
