Draw a right angled triangle to visualise the problem...
250*60=15000
hypo=15000
Using sin15=oppo/hypo,
oppo=15000*sin15
Oppo=Altitude...
Little stumped on a problem here. Plane leaves runway climbing at 15 degrees with constant speed 250 feet per second. Find altitude after 1 minute.
What would the setup be?? (Not even sure I'm using the right identity)
sin 15 degrees = X/(250 ft/sec x60 seconds)
X = 3882.29 ft??? Not sure it's right.
------------------
I simply put 250 ft x 60 s = 15000 ft on my homework, but was wrong.
Thanks for any help.
