Question

A
surveyor is standing 30 feet from the base of a building, measures
the angle of elevation to the top of the building, and is at 55
degrees. How accurately should the angle be measured so that the
percentage of error in estimating the height of the building is
less than 2%?

Answer #1

A surveyor stand 27 feet from the base of a building, measure
the angle of elevation to the top of the building and it is 55
degree. How accurately you must measure the angle so that the
percentage of error in estimating the height of the building is
less than 2%?

A surveyor standing 50 feet from the base of a large tree
measures the angle as 54.8°. How accurately must the angle be
measured if the percent error in estimating the height of the tree
is to be less than 8%? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

1. A telephone pole is 24 feet tall. Curtis, who is standing
some distance away from the telephone pole measures the angle of
elevation to the top of the pole as 51.4 degrees. How far away from
the base of the telephone pole is Curtis standing if Curtis's eye
height is 5.2 feet?

An observer, who is standing between the towers, measures the
angle of elevation to the top of each tower as 23 degrees and 43
degrees. Two cell towers of equal height are 300 ft apart. what are
the heights of the two towers. Please draw a diagram

To estimate the height of a building, two students find the
angle of elevation from a point (at ground level) down the street
from the building to the top of the building is 33∘33∘. From a
point that is 250 feet closer to the building, the angle of
elevation (at ground level) to the top of the building is 49∘49∘.
If we assume that the street is level, use this information to
estimate the height of the building.

The
angle of elevation from the top of an office building in New York
City to the top of the world trade center is 68°, while the angle
of depression from the top of the office building to the bottom is
63°. The office building is 290 feet from the World Trade Center.
Find the height of the World Trade Center.

The
angle of depression from the top of a building to a fountain is
38°. The fountain is 47 feet from the base of the building. Find
the height of the building.

From a window 55ft above the street, the angle of elevation to
top of the building across the street is 370 and the
angle of depression to the base of this building is 11o.
Find the height of the building across the street. (Round 2 Decimal

A boy standing on top of a building throws a small ball from a
height of H1 = 37.0 m. (See figure.) The ball leaves
with a speed of 24.5 m/s, at an angle of 53.0 degrees from the
horizontal, and lands on a building with a height of H2
= 16.0 m. Calculate for how long the ball is in the air. (Neglect
air friction, and use g = 9.81 m/s2.)
