### RS Aggarwal Solutions Class 10 Chapter 14 Height and Distance

Question 1:
Let AB be the tower standing on a level ground and O be the position of the observer. Then OA = 20 m and ∠OAB = 90° and ∠AOB = 60° Let AB = h meters
From the right ∆OAB, we have Hence the height of the tower is 203–√m=34.64m

Question 2:
Let OB be the length of the string from the level of ground and O be the point of the observer, then, AB = 75m and ∠OAB = 90° and ∠AOB = 60°, let OB = l meters.
From the right ∆OAB, we have Question 3:
Let AB be the man,
AB= 1.6m, CD is the tower
AE CD, DE = AB
Let CE = h In ∆ACE, Height of tower = DE + DC = (1.6 + 25.98)m = 27.58 m

Question 4:
Let AB be the tree bent at the point C so that part CB takes the position CD, then CD = CB
Let AC = x meters
Then, CD = CB = (10 – x) m
and ∠ADC = 60° Therefore, tree bent at the height of 4.64m from the bottom.

Question 5:
Let AB be the lamp post and CD be the boy, let CE be the shadow of CD
Let, ∠AEB = θ From right ∆ECD, we get From right ∆EAB, we get Hence, the height of the lamp post = 2.5 m

Question 6:
Let CD be the height of the building
Then, ∠CAB = 30°, ∠CBD = 45°,
∠ADC = 90° and AB = 30m
CD = h meters and BD = x meters
From right ∆CAD, we have From right ∆BCD, we have From (1) and (2), we get Putting h = 40.98m in (2), we get x = 40.98 m
Hence, height of building = 40.98m and
Distance of its base from the point A
= AB = (30+x) m
= (30+40.98) m = 70.98 m

Question 7:
Let CD be the tower and BD be the ground
Then, ∠CBD = 30°, ∠CAD = 60°
∠BDC = 90°, AB = 20 m, CD = h metre and AD = x metre From ∆BCD From right ∆CAD, we have Hence, the height of the tower = 17.32m and the distance of the tower from the point A = 30m.

Question 8:
Let AB and CD be the building and the tower respectively.
AB = 15 m, AE ⊥ CD
ED = AB = 15 m
Let EC = h m
And BD = AE = x m In CAE,
∠CAE = 30°and ∠AEC = 90° In CBD, ∠CBD = 60° and ∠CDB = 90° Eliminating x from (1) and (2), we get Height of tower = CE + ED = (h + 15) m
= (7.5 + 15) m = 22.5m
Hence, Height of the tower = 22.5 m and the distance between the tower and the building = 12.99 m

Question 9:
AB and CD are the two houses.
Window is at A.
In ∆ ABD, ∠B = 90°, AB = 15m AE is drawn perpendicular to CD
Therefore, AE = BD = 15 m
Let CE = h m
In ∆ ACE,
∠CAE = 30°, ∠CEA = 90° Height of opposite house = CE + ED
= (h + 15) m = (8.66 + 15) m = 23.66 m
Hence proved.

Question 10:
Let AB be the tower with height = h m
AC = flag staff = x m
PB = 30 m In ∆ PBC,
∠CPB = 60° and ∠CBP = 90° Putting value of h in (1), we get Thus, height of tower = 30m and height of flag staff = 21.96 m

Question 11:
Let AB be the tower h metre high. CA is the flag staff 5 meter high.
Let PB = x meter In ∆ PBC,
∠CPB = 60°, ∠PBC = 90° In ∆ APB,
∠APB = 30° and ∠ABP = 90° Putting value of x in (1), we get Thus, height of tower = 2.5m

Question 12:
Let SP be the statue and PB be the pedestal. Angles of elevation of S and P are 60° and 45° respectively.
Further suppose AB = x m, PB = h m In right ∆ ABS, In right ∆ PAB, Thus, height of the pedestal = 2m

Question 13:
Let AB be the tower and let the angle of elevation of its top at C be 30°. Let D be a point at a distance 150 m from C such that the angle of elevation of the top of tower at D is 60°.

Let AX be the horizontal ground.
Draw OC ⊥ AX and BD ⊥ AX.
Then, ∠CAO = 60°, ∠DAB = 30° and OC = BD = 1500√3 m From right ∆ OCA, we have From right ∆ ADB, we have Thus, the aeroplane covers 3000 m in 15 seconds
Hence the speed of the aeroplane is Question 18:
Let AB be the building and CD be the light house.
AE is drawn perpendicular to CD.
Now AB = 60 m
∠ADB = 60°, ∠CAE = 30°
Let BD = x m
AE = BD = x m In right ∆ ACE, let CE = h From (1) and (2),
