**Problems:**

- A full-sized glider has a glide angle of 2 degrees. If it
loses 50 meters of altitude, how far would it move horizontally?
- A model glider moves horizontally 12 meters for every meter of
altitude it loses. What is it's glide angle?
- A model glider has a glide angle of 5 degrees. If it flies 23
meters horizontally, how much altitude will it lose?
- A full-sized glider has a glide angle of 5 degrees. If the
altitude is 300 meters, will the glider make it to an airport
4,000 meters away?
- A full-sized glider loses 2 meters for every 38 meters it
travels horizontally. What is it's glide angle?
- A model glider travels 57 meters horizontally after losing 5
meters of altitude. What is it's glide angle?
- A model glider loses 3 meters of altitude. If it has a glide
angle of 4 degrees, how far did the glider travel horizontally?
- A full-sized glider lands 10,000 meters horizontally from
where it began its downward diagonal path. If the glide angle is 3
degrees, what was the glider's altitude?
- A model glider has an average velocity of 2.2 m/s along it's
downward diagonal path. After 10 seconds, the glider has lost 2
meters of altitude. What is the glider's glide angle and how far
horizontally did it travel?
- A full-sized glider has a velocity of 36 m/s along it's downward diagonal path. If it has a glide angle of 4 degrees, how much altitude does it lose in 2 minutes? How far would it travel horizontally in that 2 minutes?
