Question

A traffic controller at the airport watches a commercial plane circling above at a distance of 24.0 km as the pilot waits for clearance to land. If the Moon subtends an angle of 9.89 10-3 radians at the controller’s location, what is the distance the jet travels as its nose moves across the diameter of the Moon?

    Answer:

    The distance travelled is S = 237.36 \ m

    Explanation:

    From the question we are told that

        The distance of the airplane from the ground is  L = 24.0\ km

         The angle subtended by the moon is \theta = 9.89*10^{-3} \ radians

    The distance traveled can be mathematically represented as

                S = R \theta

    Substituting values

                S =  24 *10^3 * 9.89*10^{-3}

               S = 237.36 \ m
