## Homework Statement

A carpenter on a space statopn has constructed a 30 degress ramp. A rocket moves past the space station with a relative speed f 0.730c in a direction parallel to the horizontal. What does a person above the ocker measure for the angle of the ramp?

## Homework Equations

sine and cosine relations

L(m) = L(s)sqrt. 1-v^2/c^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I haven't been able to simplify far enough to get an angle. I'm not to sure about which length is L(m) or L(s) and I assumed that the angle that the rocker would measure would be from L(m) and H(m), but i arrive at a different answer. The answer is supposed to be 40.2 degrees.
