An observer notices that an aeroplane flies directly overhead. Two minutes later the aeroplane is at an angle of elevation of 27*. Assuming the aeroplane is travelling with constant speed, what will be its angle of elevation after another two minutes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let the required angle be x assuming height to be h then horizontal distance of the point directly over head from the aeroplane after first two minutes is gien by h cot27 hence after the next two minutes the plane covers another h cot27 cot x = (h cot27 + h cot27)/h or x =cot^1(2cot27)
