james has a science project due. The goal of the science project is to drop an egg off of the side of a building and not break the egg. The first location james drops the egg from is the roof of his house.
The height of the house is 16 feet above the ground and james has to drop the egg off of the house at a 40 degree angle. After he drops the egg, he has to figure out how many feet he has to walk to retrieve the egg.
From where james was standing, he found a tree that appeared to be 47 feet away from him. The angle of elevation of the top of the tree is 35degrees. Before he climbs the tree, james needs to know the height of it
After james found out the height of the tree, he climbed it and dropped the egg. the egg still broke so he decided to find somewhere taller. He climbed on top of a shed which was 50 ft tall. James was standing 30 feet away from the building and he needed to figure out at which angle he should drop the egg from the top of the building
James realizes his logic makes no sense and that dropping the egg from a higher place doesnt make it less likely to break. He failed his project.
