These solutions are available for free PDF download from the given link at Vedantu official. Let’s get started with the solved Maths Class 10 chapter 9 questions.
Example: A villager is climbing a coconut tree using a 20 m long rope, which is tightly tied from the top of a vertical pole to the ground. Evaluate the height of the coconut tree, if the angle formed by the rope with the ground level is 30°. You can find the illustration below.

Solution: Given that length of the rope named AC = 20m
Angle formed is ∠ACB = 30°
Let the height AB of the coconut tree be h (meters)
With that, in right ▲ABC,
sin 30° = AB/AC
½= h/20 (since sin 30° = ½)
H = 20/2 = 10metres
Therefore, the height of the coconut tree is 10m
Example: The facilities department of a housing society plans to put two slides for the kids to play in a park. For the kids below the age of 5 years, they want to have a slide whose top is at a height of 1.5 m, and is disposed at an angle of 30° to the ground, while for older children, they prefer to have a steep slide based at a height of 3 m, and inclined at an angle of 60° to the ground. Find out the length of the slide in both the cases?

Let the length of the slide for children below 5years of age x and the length of the slide for older children be y.
Given that: AF = 1.5 m and BC = 3m
∠FEA = 30°and ∠CDB = 60°
In right ▲FAE, sin 30°= AF/EF = 1.5/x
½ = 1.5/x
Thus x= 3m
In right ▲CBD, sin 60°= BC/CD = 3/y
√3/2 = 3/y
Thus, y = 3*2 / √3 = 2√3m
Therefore the length of the slide for children below 5years of age is 3m and the length of the slide for older children is 2√3m.
Example: An air balloon is flying above the ground at a height of 60 m. The string joined to the balloon is temporarily tied to a point on the ground. The inclination of the string with the ground level is 60°. What will be the length of the string, supposing that there is no slack in the string?

Solution: Given that: AB = 60m and ∠ACB = 60°
Let AC be the length of the string
Then, in the right ▲ABC, sin 30°= AB/AC
= √3/2 = 60/AC
AC= 60*2/√3/ * √3/√3
= 120* √3 / 3
Therefore, the total length of the string is 40√3m
