02ps-02 Shadows And Trigonometry

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    This question uses the Banco di Sicilia in Syracuse, Italy.
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    Now, this building has a height of 18 m.
  • 0:07 - 0:12
    When we measured the length of the shadow, we found that it is equal to 10 m.
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    Now, I want to know, how high is the sun?
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    What I mean by that is if we look at the right triangle
  • 0:17 - 0:20
    formed by the edge of the building, the edge of the shadow,
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    and the imaginary line here, what is this angle?
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    I'm going to call this angle β, because we've been using α too much.
  • 0:28 -
    Enter your answer here in degrees, and you can answer to 1 decimal place.
