8-4 ANGLES OF ELEVATION
AND DEPRESSION
Essential Understanding
Describing angles
• What is the description of each angle as it relates to the
situation shown?
Example
• When the sun’s angle of elevation is 38°, a building
casts a shadow of 45m. How tall is the building?

Example
• From the top of a lighthouse 20m tall, a sailboat is
sighted having an angle of depression of 4°. How
far from the lighthouse is the boat?

A library needs to build an access ramp for
wheelchairs. The main entrance to the library is 8 ft
above sidewalk level. If the architect designs the
slope of the ramp in such a way that the angle of
elevation is 5°, how long must the access ramp be?
91.8 ft

• A meteorologist measures the angle of elevation of
a weather balloon as 31. A radio signal from the
balloon indicates that it is 100 meters from his
location. To the nearest meter, how high above the
ground is the balloon?
