Applications Involving Right Triangles The angle you are given is the angle of elevation, which represents the angle from the horizontal upward to an object. For objects that lie below the horizontal, it is common to use the term angle of depression.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
