## 02ps-14 Height Of The Duomo

• 0:00 - 0:03
This problem takes place in Florence, Italy.
• 0:03 - 0:06
The Duomo is a famous cathedral in Florence, Italy.
• 0:06 - 0:09
In this problem you are going to calculate the height of the Duomo.
• 0:09 - 0:12
You'll calculate this height based on these dimensions,
• 0:12 - 0:14
which I've given you here, as well as the fact
• 0:14 - 0:18
that at a certain time of day the sun strikes just right,
• 0:18 - 0:23
so that one of the sun's rays, which just grazes the tip of the spire here
• 0:23 - 0:27
will also just graze the corner of this part of the building
• 0:27 - 0:30
and land right into this man's eye.
• 0:30 - 0:34
Use these dimensions, use this fact about the sun's ray,
• 0:34 - 0:36
and tell me the height of the Duomo.
• 0:36 - 0:38
Enter your height here in meters,
• 0:38 -
and remember the height is the full distance from this tip all the way down to the bottom.
