Dear student,

Let _ be the centre of the ballon of radius ‘r’ and ‘p’ the eye of the observer. Let

PA, PB be tangents from P to ballong. Then ÐAPB = _ .

\ÐAPO = ÐBPO =

q

Let OL be perpendicular from O on the horizontal PX. We are given that the

angle of the elevation of the centre of the ballon is f i.e.,

ÐOPL = f

In DOAP, we have sin

OP

OA

OP = a cosec

In DOP L, we have sinf =

_ OL = OP sin f = a cosec

f

sin _.

Hence, the height of the center of the balloon is a sin _ cosec _ /2.
