II. Long Answer Questions:

Question 1.

The angle of elevation of an aeroplane from a point on the ground is 45°. After a flight of 15 seconds horizontally, the angle of elevation changes to 30° if the aeroplane is flying at a constant height of 2500 m then find the speed of the plane.

Answer:

2500 + BD = 2500\(\sqrt{3}\)

BD = 2500\(\sqrt{3}\) – 2500

BD = 2500(\(\sqrt{3}\) – 1)m

But BD = CE = 2500 (\(\sqrt{3}\) – 1) m

Speed = 118.33.m / sec

Question 2.

From a point on the ground 40 m away from the foot of a tower, the angle of elevation of the top of a tower is 30° the angle of elevation of the top of water tank on top of the tower is 45°. Find

(i) height of the tower

(ii) depth of the tank

Answer:

AD = 40 m

∴ CD = AD – AC = 40 – \(\frac{40}{\sqrt{3}}\)

CD = 40\(\left(1-\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\right)\) m

Question 3.

A tall building casts a shadow of 300 m long when the sun’s altitude elevation is 30°. Find the height of the tower.

Answer:

= 100\(\sqrt{3}\) m

Height of the tower is 100\(\sqrt{3}\) m

Question 4.

A tree is broken over by the wind forms a right angled triangle with the ground. If the broken parts makes an angle of 60° with the ground and the top of the tree is now 20 m from its base, how tall was the tree.

Answer:

AB = 20\(\sqrt{3}\) m.

Height of tree = AD = AB + BC

= 40 + 20\(\sqrt{3}\)

= 20(2 + \(\sqrt{3}\))

Question 5.

The angle of elevation of the top of a flag post from a point on a horizontal ground is found to be 30°. On walking 6 m towards the post, the elevation increases by 15°.

Find the height of the flag post.

Answer:

In ∆ ABC θ = 30°.

Y + 6 = x\(\sqrt{3}\) → (1)

In ∆ ABD, θ = 45°

x = y → (2)

Put equation (2) in equation (1)

Question 6.

From the top of a building 16 m high, the angular elevation of the top of a hill is 60° and the angular depression of the foot of the hill is 30°. Find the height of the hill.

Answer:

In ∆ AED, θ = 30°

In ∆ BCE, θ = 60°

From (1) and (2)

16 × 3 = x – 16

x = 48 + 16 = 64

∴ The height of the hill is 64 m.

Question 7.

Two windmills of height 50 m and 40 m are on either side of the field. A person observes the top of the windmills from a point in between the towers. The angle of elevation was found to be 45° in both the cases. Find the distance between the windmills.

Answer:

Let AB be a tower of height = 50 m

CD be another tower of height = 40 m

The observer is at P and angle of elevation.

PD = 40 m

∴ BD = BP + PD = 50 + 40 = 90 m

∴ The distance between the wind mills on either side of field is 90 m.
