Problems:

1. A full-sized glider has a glide angle of 2 degrees. If it loses 50 meters of altitude, how far would it move horizontally?

2. A model glider moves horizontally 12 meters for every meter of altitude it loses. What is it's glide angle?

3. A model glider has a glide angle of 5 degrees. If it flies 23 meters horizontally, how much altitude will it lose?

4. 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?

5. A full-sized glider loses 2 meters for every 38 meters it travels horizontally. What is it's glide angle?

6. A model glider travels 57 meters horizontally after losing 5 meters of altitude. What is it's glide angle?

7. A model glider loses 3 meters of altitude. If it has a glide angle of 4 degrees, how far did the glider travel horizontally?

8. 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?

9. 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?

10. 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?
