**Applications of Trigonometry Heights and Distances cbse ncert solutions class 10 Chapter 9 Exercise 9.1 Question 2**

**2.** A tree breaks due to storm and the broken part bends so that the top of the tree touches the ground making an angle 30 with it. The distance between the foot of the tree to the point where the top touches the ground is 8 m. Find the height of the tree.

**Solution:**

It is given that BC = 8 m

m

And,

m

**Height of the tree =** **Broken part of tree + Remaining part of tree = AB + AC =** m
