**16. HEIGHTS AND DISTANCES

Synopsis : ANGLE OF ELEVATION 1. If the position of the object is above the position of the observation then the angle made by the line joining object and observation point with the horizontal line drawn at the observation point is called angle of elevation.

ANGLE OF DEPRESSION: 2. If the position of the object is below the position of the observation the angle made by the line joining object and observation point with the horizontal line drawn at the observation point is called angle of depression.

3.

a. The angle of elevation of the top of a tower, standing on a horizontal plane, from a point A is . After walking a distance ‘d’ metres towards the foot of the tower, the angle of elevation is found . to be β d sin β sin α The height of the tower h = Sin( β − α ) d (or) h = Cotα − cot β

Where AB = d 4. If the Points of observation A and B lie on either side of the tower, then height of the tower d sin α sin β h= Sin(α + β ) Where AB = d
