From the diagram (not to scale), d h ) tan( . d h 1 tan . (a) (b) Notice that at large distances the angular size doesn’t change much with distance but as you get close to the grain elevator, skyscraper, etc. the angular size increases rapidly with decreasing distance. (c) For distances ~4000 m the plot is approximately straight indicating an exponential dependence of on d . Also notice in the table for part (a) that for small values of , d h ) tan( . So, d h (for expressed in radians). So, ) ln( ) ln( ln ) ln( d h d h , and a log-log plot of vs. d would be a straight line. d h h 40 m.
