Hello, I'm in need of a hint or few pointers on how to calculate the angle C of the picture attached. I've already calculated y.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was doing a few problems in this Dynamics book, i bought recently, and the ascention angle (angle C) is beating me

"The airplane C is being tracked down by the radar stations A and B. At the instant shown on the picture, the triangle ABC encounters itself in vertical plane and the lectures are Angle A = 30 degrees, Angle B = 22 degrees, Angular Speed A = 0.026 rad/s, Angular Speed B = 0.032 rad/s. Find a) the height y, b) the magnitude of the velocity (the vector V is at point C directed at an ascention angle (angle C) with respect tot he horizontal c) the ascention angle at the instant shown (angle c)"

ah yes distance d = 1000 m and it's between the stations A and B.

I hope the diagram is clear enough...
