Finding the Height of a cliff

Hello again,

I have this question that I could not find the answer to:

Quote:

At the point P, a ship observes that the angle of elevation of the cliff at point T is 32 degrees. It sails for 180m towards the cliff to reach the point Q and observes that the angle of elevation of the point T becomes 48 degrees. Calculate the height of the cliff. (TR)

How can one find the height of the cliff using trigonometric function if we only have the adjacent information of the angle 32 degrees...?

Thank you

hello,

Antonia stands at the edge of a vertical cliff and throws a stone vertically upwards. The stone leaves her hand with a speed of 8.0 m/s. Acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/s2 and all distance measurements are taken from the point where the stone leaves Antonia's hand.

thanks!!
