Here's the problem I'm stuck on. I'm honestly not even sure what it's asking.
"The axis of a light in a lighthouse is tilted. When the light points east, it is inclined upward at 1 degree(s). When it points north, it is inclined upward at 2 degree(s). What is its maximum angle of elevation? (Hint: The maximum angle of elevation of plane of the beam above the horizontal plane is the same as the angle between the normal to the plane of the beam and the normal to the horizontal plane.)"
Can anyone help me visualize what I'm trying to solve? Or how I should begin tackling this (probably simple) problem?
Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated. I'll respond as soon as possible.
EDIT: I'm going to start working on this here. I may have figured something out. Maybe set the lighthouse at the origin (0,0,0), and have two vectors <0,1,1... degree..? crap nevermind
