Question 1.

Draw diagram for the following situations:

i) A person is flying a kite at an angle of elevation a and the length of thread from his hand to kite is ‘l’.

ii) A person observes two banks of a river at angles of depression θ_{1} and θ_{2} (θ_{1} < θ_{2}) from the top of a tree of height ‘h’ which is at a side of the river. The width of the river is ‘d’.

Answer:

In the figure

‘D’ is the position of person

CD is the height of the tree

AB is the width of the river

Angles of depression are θ

_{1}and θ

_{2}.

Question 1.

You are observing top of your school building at an angle of elevation a from a point which is at d meter distance from foot of the building. Which trigonometric ratio would you like to consider to find the height of the building?

Answer:

The trigonometric ratio which connects d and h is tan α.

Question 2.

A ladder of length x meter is leaning against a wall making angle θ with the ground. Which trigonometric ratio would you like to consider to find the height of the point on the wall at which the ladder is touching?

Answer:

We use ‘sin θ’ as it is the ratio between the side opp. to θ and hypotenuse.
