    sin theta = opp/hypotenuse

    \[\sin \theta= \frac{opposite~side}{hypotenuse}\]

    \[\sin (0.5) = \frac{1}{AB}\]Solve.

    I don't want the length of AB,I want the length of BC! @saifoo.khan

    After you have AB, use Pythagoras to find it.

    if i get the value of theeta like theeta =arcsin(1/2) then i use tan theeta to find it how will i do it then @saifoo.khan

    Look, sin x = opp/hyp. and you are given sin x = 1/2 This means that opp is 1 and hyp is 2.

    Now: b^2 + p^2 = h^2 1^2 + p^2 = 2^2 you will get p.

    Well, like @saifoo.khan said by pythagorus theorem 2^2 = BC^2 + 1^2 BC^2= 2^2-1^2 BC^2= 4-1=3 BC = \(\sqrt{3}\)=1.73
