A ladder 15 m long just reaches the top of a vertical wall. If the ladder makes an angle of 60° with the wall, then calculate the height of the wall. (2013OD)

Hide | ShowAnswer :

∠BAC = 180° – 90° – 60° = 30°

sin 30° = BC/AC

1/2=BC/15

2BC = 15

BC = 15/2m

In the given figure, a tower AB is 20 m high and BC, its shadow on the ground, is 20√3m long. Find the Sun’s altitude. (2015OD)

Answer :

AB = 20 m, BC =20√3m,

In ∆ABC, Using trigonometry

In the figure, AB is a 6 m high pole and CD is a ladder inclined at an angle of 60° to the horizontal and reaches up to a point D of pole. If AD = 2.54 m. Find the length of the ladder. (Use √3 = 1.73) (2016D)

Answer :

BD = AB – AD = 6 – 2.54 = 3.46 m

In rt., ∆DBC, sin 60° = BD/DC

√3/2=3.46/DC

√3 /DC = 3.46 x 2

∴ Length of the ladder, DC = 6.92 /√3=6.92/1.73

DC = 4 m

A ladder, leaning against a wall, makes anangle of 60° with the horizontal. If the foot of the ladder is 2.5 m away from the wall, find the length of the ladder. (2016OD)

Hide | ShowAnswer :

Let us assume AC be the ladder

∴ Length of ladder, AC = 5 m 2.5 m

If a tower 30 m high, casts a shadow 10√3m long on the ground, then what is the angle of elevation of the sun? (2017OD)

Hide | ShowAnswer :

Let us assume required angle be θ.

tan θ = 30 /10 √3

tan θ = √3

⇒ tan θ = tan 60°

⇒θ = 60°

In this chapter, “ Some applications of trigonometry”, class 10 students will get to know how trigonometry is helpful in finding the height and distance of different objects without measuring. In earlier days, astronomers have used trigonometry for calculating the distance from the earth to the planets and stars. Trigonometry is mostly used in navigation and geography to locate the position in relation to the latitude and longitude.
