Textbook Problem

A ladder 9.00 m long leans against the side of a building. If the ladder is inclined at an angle of 75.0° to the horizontal, what is the horizontal distance from the bottom of the ladder to the building?

To determine
The horizontal distance from the bottom of the ladder to the building.

Explanation

Given Info: The length of the ladder (L) is 9m and angle (θ) is 75°

Explanation:

Considering the below figure to determine the horizontal distance.

Formula to calculate the horizontal distance from the figure is,

d=Lcosθ

  • d is horizontal distance,
  • L is length of the ladder,
  • θ is the angle

Substitute 9m for L , 75° for θ to find d
