Hi everyone. I have this assignment whereby I need to use the parallax method to calculate the distance to a pole from a base line on our school field. I am kind of confused as to how I can apply the parallax method to do this on our assessment day. We know that on one end of the rectangular field, there is a baseline market in 1 metre intervals while on the other side there is a line marked in 0.8 metre intervals. The pole is somewhere in the middle of the two and we need to know how to find the distance. However one condidiotn is that we can't use purely geomtrety but we actually need to apply the parallax method. After much researhing I have decided to look at the pole from either end of the baseline (whose distance I can emasure) and see how far the pole has moved relative to the line of the opposite side. I've got these two triangles now but the only problem is I have no idea how to emasure the angles that I need (parallax angles). We can't use an angletron or any other angle measuring machine, but we can use a protractor. The only thing is, I think the protractor won't give me very accurate measurments. I'm not asking for anyone to do the assignment for me lol... I jsut need ideas on how to measure the angles and whether or not you think my method is ok so far and any improvements that could be made. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank!
