Running head: CALCULATING TREE HEIGHT Calculating Tree Height

Dr. Al Gebrawiz 1 CALCULATING TREE HEIGHT 2

 

Calculating Tree Height The height of tall objects can be difficult to measure using direct measurement. It may

 

also be dangerous and lack accuracy. An alternative to direct measurement is available by

 

incorporating trigonometry and other direct measurements. In this assignment, the height of a

 

large tree was calculated using the trigonometric tangent function.

 

Methodology and Discussion

 

In this problem, the height of a large tree is unknown. The tree is standing on horizontal

 

ground and is 150 feet from Point A. The angle between the ground and the tip of the tree is 40°,

 

and is measured at Point A (Figure 1). The goal of this problem is to determine the height of the

 

tree using trigonometry. Point A 40°

 

150 feet Figure 1. Dimensions used to calculate tree height.

 

One portion of trigonometry deals with right angle triangles ? those that contain a right,

 

or 90°, angle. The tangent function describes the tangent of an angle as equal to the length of the

 

side opposite of the angle divided by the length of the side adjacent to the angle (not the

 

hypotenuse). This relationship can be used to calculate the height of the tree shown in Figure 1.

 

tan 40° = 0.84= tree height

tree height =126 feet Errors can arise from inaccurate estimates of the angular measurement. Table 1 shows the

 

errors that would occur if incorrect angular estimates were made in the problem solved in this

 

paper. Errors can be significant, and can be minimized through the careful use of a protractor or

 

other accurate sighting device.

The method described in this paper provides an accurate estimate of object height if right

 

angle geometry exists and if the horizontal distance and angle measurements are accurately

 

made.

 

Conclusions

 

Trigonometry is a powerful tool. In this assignment, the height of an object was

 

calculated given the distance an object was from a point and the angle measured between the top

 

of the object and the horizon. This method does not provide an accurate estimate if a right

 

triangle is not formed between the object and the horizontal plane, such as an object standing

 

vertically on sloped ground. However, other simple trigonometric methods exist that can be used

 

for more complicated geometries (Gebrawiz, 2013). CALCULATING TREE HEIGHT 4 CALCULATING TREE HEIGHT 5
