 More on the curvature of the Earth 2018-04-23 will pose la question :the formula for figuring the earth's curve goes against logic, looking at a fixed point and backup 1mi. the point drops 8" then 16" in the next mi. and 32" in the third mi. why shouldn't it be 24" why is the 8" per mi. squared can you tell me in laymens terms why this is it goes against logic it would seem the correct wat would be to add up 8" per mile as you back up from the fixed point 8"- 16"- 24"- 32" not 8/16/32/64"Harley Weston lui répond. The curvature of the earth 2012-02-08 sean pose la question :Question from sean, a student: Two people 1.8 metres tall walk directly away from each other until they can no longer see each other (due to the curvature of the earth, which has a radius of about 6378 km). A) Find a function relating the height of two identical objects with the distance between them using the scenario above as an example. B) Sketch this function (you may use Graphmatica if you wish). Over what domain and range does the function exist? C) Describe this relation in practical terms.Harley Weston lui répond. A camera's line of sight 2011-02-26 MJ pose la question :A rocket that is rising vertically is being tracked by a ground level camera located 3 mi from the point of blast off when the rocket is 2 mi high its speed is 400mph At what rate is the (acute) angle between the horizontal and the camera's line of sight changingPenny Nom lui répond. Line of sight 2010-05-06 David pose la question :I live in St. Joseph, Michigan and there is an ongoing argument regarding line-of-sight over the horizon. Standing on a 200 foot high bluff here, people swear they can see the top of the Willis (nee Sears) Tower in Chicago, which is about 1653 feet high. It is my contention that this is actually a "refracted reflection" and not direct-line-of-sight. So, to settle the argument, I'd sure like some simple explanation for this, even if-and I hope not-I am incorrect. DavidHarley Weston lui répond. How far can you see? 2003-12-15 Judy pose la question : How far apart, assuming no obstacles, can two people stand and still see each other? i know this deals with the curvature of earth, but i can't figure out the formulas involved. Chris Fisher lui répond.
