A rectangular block of wood, ABCD, leans against  a vertical wall, as shown in th diagram below. 

AB = 8cm, BC = 5cm and angle BA^E = 28o.

Find the vertical height of C above the ground.

The height of C above the ground  =  BE + FB

 

BE  =  AB * sin (28)  =  8 *sin (28)

FB  =  BC * cos(28)  =  5 * cos (28)

 

So......

 

BE + FB   =

 

 8 * sin (28)  +  5 * cos (28)  ≈  8.17 cm
