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.
