27. We make the assumption that the clouds are directly overhead, so that Figure 1-3 (and the calculations that accompany it) apply. Following the steps in Sample Problem 1-4, we have θ 360 = t 24 h which, for t = 38 min = 38 / 60 h yields

Unformatted text preview: θ = 9 . 5 ◦ . We obtain the altitude h from the relation d 2 = r 2 tan 2 θ = 2 rh which is discussed in that Sample Problem, where r = 6 . 37 × 10 6 m is the radius of the earth. Therefore, h = 8 . 9 × 10 4 m....
