A kite is 60 ft high with 100 ft of cord out. If the kite is moving horizontally 4 mi/hr directly away from the boy flying it, find the rate of change of the angle of elevation of the cord.
A rowboat is pushed off from a beach at 8 ft/sec. A man on shore holds a rope, tied to the boat, at a height of 4 ft. Find how fast the angle of elevation of the rope is decreasing, after 1 sec.
A balloon, leaving the ground 60 ft from an observer, rises 10 ft/sec. How fast is the angle of elevation of the line of sight increasing, after 8 seconds?
