Question

Please help. I’ve done this question 3 times and got it wrong. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

It reads: a 40.0 guy wire isn’t attached to the he top of a 31.8-m antenna and to a point on a ground. How far Is the point on the ground from the base of the antenna, and what angle does the guy wire make with the ground?

The point on the  ground is ___ meters away.

The wire makes an angle of ___ degrees with the ground. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseA 40.0-m guy wire is attached to the top of a 31.8-m antenna and to a point on the ground.

Step 1

The given situation can be inscribed in a right angled triangle as follows.

Step 2

Obtain the distance between the base of the anten... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseObserve that the required distance is the base of the right angled triangle The base can be calculated using the Pythagorus theorem x2= 401.8 = 1600-1011.24 /588.76 24.26 m fullscreen
