A surveyor measures the angle of elevation of the top of a building as seen from a spot on the ground 100 feet from the building and finds it to be 1 . 25 radians. Estimate the height of the building. 2. In the Angst Amusement Park, the Ferris wheel has a radius of 20 feet and makes one com plete revolution every half minute. What is the greatest vertical speed, in miles per hour, experienced by a passenger? 3. Dweeb Lake on the planet Nerdopia has a straight coastline. A boat on the lake travels parallel to the coast, at a distance of 1 nerdometer from the shore, at a constant speed of s nerdometers per nerdochrone. An observer on the shore measures the angle ( t ) between the shoreline and the line of sight from the observer to the ship. The measurements show that, at a certain time t , ( t ) = / 4 radians and ( t ) = 15 radians per nerdochrone. What is the value of s ?...
