The opposit of a tree is a non-tree. It doesn't actually exist in the tangible world as it would grow underground and inside out.

###### Asked in Units of Measure

### Audio John wants to measure the height of a tree He walks exactly 100 feet from the base of the tree and looks up The angle from the ground to the top of the tree is 33º How tall is the tree?

64.9408 ft.
You calculate this using trigonometry. Sine, cosine, and tangent
are fractions made by dividing the length of one of the sides of a
triangle by one of the other sides. The sine, cosine, or tangent
for an angle is always the same, so if we know the angle and the
length of one of the sides we can calculate the lengths of the
other sides. Assuming the tree is at 90o to the ground we have a
right angled triangle. The side of the triangle from john to the
top of the tree is the hypotenuse ( the longest side) from John to
the base of the tree is the adjacent side, and the ground to the
top of the tree is the opposite side. Because we know the length of
the adjacent side and need to find the length of the opposite, the
function we use is the tangent, tangent = length of opposite side
divided length of adjacent side.
The angle is 33o so we look up tan 33o which is 0.6494.
Tan(33)= length of opposite/length of adjacent
(move length adj by multiplying both sides by length adj)
Tan(33) x length of adjacent = length of opposite
(length from John to tree 100ft= 30.84 metres)
0.6494 x 30.48 metres = length of opposite (which is the height
of the tree)
Tree height = 19.79 metres (or 64 feet 11 and 9/64 inches)
