Draw  QM intersecting  RT  at M  and parallel to T

Then.....triangle RQM  is right  with  angle RQM  = 10°

 

Then  we have that

 

sin (RQM)  =  RM / QR   

 

sin (10°)  = RM / QR   

 

QR sin (10°)  =  RM

 

Then....the height of Q above the ground is given by :

 

RT  -  RM  =

 

RT - QRsin (10° )
