An airplane is headed for the airport, 15 miles away. If the airplane is at an altitude of 5000feet, what is the angle of depression, to the nearest tenth of a degree, from the airplane tothe airport? (1 mile = 5280 feet)

Angle of inclination  = Angle of depression

 

arctan  ( 5000   / ( 15 *5280) )  = angle of  depression  ≈  3.6°
