Put a stick upright in the shade near its top and measure the length of the stick, covered by the shadow (Fig. 28). Then BB: AB = JG: LH, where AT = AH X (BB: AB), ie, dividing the length covered by the shadow of the stick on the distance to the top of the shade of a tree and multiplying that number by the length of the shadow, we get the height of the tree or any other subject.
The height of the object can also be defined by its shadow with the sub object, such as a stick, as follows. Height measured object as many times a certain height sticks, how many times shadow more from him the shadow Read more [...]
