How important is the tower height for a windmill?
The wind mill height can be greater than the larger Parreh used in the power and a lot more mills.
A scale model of the Eiffel tower is 3 1 feet high The ratio of the height of the model to the height of the tower is 1 318 How tall is the tower in feet?
Man, you should do your homework by yourself, that ain't so difficult! Look: _We know that the scale model of the Eiffel tower is 3'1 feet high _The ratio is 1:318 which means that the real height of the tower as compared to the scale model is 318 times higher. Hence: The height of the tower = Scale model height x 318 Height = 3'1 x 318 Height = 985.8 feet
from trigonometry - (you'll need a table or calculator) - the "tangent" function is the ratio of the opposite side of a right triangle to the base. in your example, the opposite side is the "height" of the tower, the base is the "distance you're standing from the tower", and the angle is measured from where you're standing to the top of the tower. alternately, without having "tangent" tables or a calculator, you can make…
