i don't understand how to figure this problem out, and i really need the help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A kite is flying Y feet about the ground at the end of a 100 ft. string. the string makes an angle of ? (theta) with the ground.

1. find the equation for dY/d?. what are its units?

2. find dY/d? when Y= 50 feet. State the units

3. if the angular velocite d?/dT =.8 radians per second, how fast is the kite rising when Y=50 feet?

4. how fast is your answer to c in miles per hour?

I AM COMPLETELY LOST, EXCEPT FOR I AM PRETTY SURE I CAN FIGURE OUT NUMBER 4 ONCE I HAVE THE ANSWER TO NUMBER 3 SINCE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CALCULUS. PLEASE HELP ME........
