Question

The angle of elevation of the top of a tower from a point on the ground, which is 30 m away from the foot of the tower, is 30°. Find the height of the tower

Solution

Let AB be the tower and the angle of elevation from point C (on ground) is

30°.

In ΔABC,

`(AB)/(BC) = tan 30^@`

`(AB)/30 = 1/sqrt3`

`AB = 30/sqrt3 = 10sqrt3 m`

Therefore, the height of the tower is `10sqrt3 m`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
