**8.4 Angles of Elevation and Depression**• Suppose a person on the ground sees a hang glider at a 40° angle above a horizontal line. This angle is the angle of elevation. • At the same time, a person in the hang glider sees the person on the ground at a 40° angle below a horizontal line. This angle is the angle of depression.**Using the Angle of Elevation**• Suppose you stand 53 ft. from a wind farm turbine. Your angle of elevation to the hub of the turbine is 56.5°. Your eye level is 5.5 ft. above the ground. Approximately how tall is the turbine from the ground to its hub?**Use the Angle of Depression**• To approach runway 17 of the Ponca City Municipal Airport in Oklahoma, the pilot must begin a 3° descent starting from a height of 2714 ft. above sea level. The airport is 1007 ft. above sea level. To the nearest tenth of a mile, how far from the runway is the airplane at the start of this approach? 3°**More Practice!!!!!**• Homework – Textbook p. 519 #9 – 22 ALL.
