A round balloon of radius r subtends an angle at the eye of the
observer while the angle of elevation of its centre is . Prove that the
height of the centre of the balloon is .

Let O be the centre of the balloon of radius r and P the eye of the observer. Let PA and PB be tangents from P to the balloon. .
Let OL be perpendicular from O to the horizontal.
OP= r cosec…(i)
OL = r sinф cosec (from (i))
Thus, the height of the centre of the balloon is r sinф cosec.

- The angle of elevation of stationary cloud from a point 25 cm above the lake is 30°and the angle of depression of its reflection in the lake 60° what is the height of the cloud above that lake level.
- the angle of depression from the top of a lighthouse of height h on either sides of sea on boats is 30° & 60° then find distance between boats.
