Description:

Question Let's think about the highest peak in the world, Mt. Everest. If we stand in India on the Ganges Plain at the foothills of the Himalayas, we are standing at about 180 m (590') above sea level. It's only 195 km (121 miles) map distance from where we're standing to the summit of Everest at over 8,848 m (29,028') above sea level. If we were to stretch a nice straight wire for a cable car from the Ganges Plain to the summit of Everest, at what angle would the cable rise? Choose from 3Â, 5Â, 10Â, 20Â, or 30Â.
