What does this MEAN? if the descent is 10miles then he is 10 miles away if it is 10 mins - then we need speed if it is 10metresd - then he just crashed is it meant to be 10 deg?
  • MrNood
I have worked it out based on 10 deg descent - and one of her answers is correct - so assume that degrees is correct:|dw:1434121071318:dw| Use Tan function
  • MrNood
HMMM - a bit of a dilemma here: 'Distance strictly means the glideslope distance - i.e. the sloping line: |dw:1434121273744:dw| use sine fucnction
