Storyboard Text

  • Hmm.. I wonder how tall that tree is....
  • I'll USE TRIGONOMETRY!
  • Lucky I have my handy clinometer on me!
  • 540 CM
  • First, I'll measure the distance between myself and the tree...
  • Now using my clinometer, I'll look through the straw at the point where I can see the top of the tree
  • It seems like the angle of elevation is 35 degrees
  • OPPOSITE
  • 540 cm (ADJACENT)
  • HYPOTENUSE
  • 
  • eye height (165 CM)
  • 35
  • Time for trigonometry!
  • tan= 0/A tan35= 0/540 0= tan35 x 540 0 + eye height = 378.1 + 165 = 543.1cm 
  • I think that the appropriate symbol to use would be tan
  • Yay! One tree done, a forest to go!
