Please assist,Attachment 19505 I need to determine the inclination of a vertical member. I have four readings from North, East, South, and West the offset from the vertical.
It's basically a pole where the reading have been taken accurately around the base. The client wants to know the inclination, see attachment for figures.
How can I calculate the inclination?
As you have guessed I am not a mathematician.
Couple of comments.
1. Could you please draw a picture of the physical situation here? I don't find your explanation of the problem very understandable. Include units for all the numbers!
2. Isn't starboard up the same motion as port side down?
