Long Answer Type Questions (Q. No. 1-6)
Question. 3 The angle of elevation of the top of a tower from certain point is 30°. If the observer moves 20m towards the tower, the angle of elevation of the top increases by 15°. Find the height of the tower.
Let AC be the h metre high tower and B be the initial point from where angle of elevation of the top of tower is observed.
Let after moving 20m towards tower, observer stands on point D with angle of elevation being 30o +15o = 45o and x metres away from the foot of tower.
Question. 5 If sinθ + 2cosθ = 1, then prove that 2 sinθ - cosθ = 2.
Question. 6 The angle of elevation of the top of a tower from two points distant s and t from its foot are
Let AC be the h metre high tower and θ and (90° – θ) be the angles of elevation for distances s and t respectively.
[As the two angles of elevation are given to be the complementary angles]
