Form 2 Mathematics
The diagram below represents two vertical watch-towers AB and CD on a level ground. P and Q are two points on a straight road BD. The height of the tower AB is 20m road a BD is 200m.
a) A car moves from B towards D. At point P, the angle of depression of the car from point A is 11.3. Calculate the distance BP to 4 significant figures.
b) If the car takes 5 seconds to move from P to Q at an average speed of 36 km/h, calculate the angle of depression of Q from A to 2 decimal places
c) Given that QC=50.9m, calculate;
(i) The height of CD in meters to 2 decimal places;
(ii) The angle of elevation of A from C to the nearest degree.
