les. Draw a neat diagram and find the distance between the instants when the lighthouse 040° T and 120° T.
HINT: This is NOT a problem to be solved using cosine rule. Since the distance is constant, the ship will travel along the arc. You should therefore use radian measure to workout the distance along the arc. Also remember that all bearings are from seawards .
2, The length of a shadow of a vertical flag mast 2.5 meters high is 5.2 meters (shadow's length). Find the sun's altitude.
3, From a ship, a light on the edge of a breakwater bore 045° T . The ship was steering a course of 060° T. After travelling for 30 minutes, the same light bore 280° T and distance off 2.0 nautical miles. Find the speed of the vessel.
