A submersible traveling at a depth of 250 feet dives at an angle of 15 degrees with respect to a line parallel to the water's surface. It travels a horizontal distance of 1500 feet during the dive. What is the depth of the submersile after the dive?Explain how the angle of the dive affects the final depth.
