Using shadows to determine heights

May 30, 2018

We used a meter stick as a reference, and measured the lenght of its shadow.  

We can now measure shadows and determine the heights of the tall objects.

We can do this and make similar triangles because the sun is at the same spot in the sky when we take all these measurements.
