How to measure the Height of tree Building and Stars using the Star Tracker The tangent of angle a is equal to side A divided by side B. tan a = A ÷ B Now, we can find the height of the flagpole in the drawing to the right. The height of the flagpole is side A plus “H” which is the height of your eyeball above the ground. The tangent of angle a is equal to side A divided by side B. tan a = A ÷ B Suppose angle a is equal to 60° and side B is 50 feet. Then, tan 60° = A ÷ 50 feet You can find tangents on many calculators, and in tables from trigonometry books and on the internet. The tangent of 60° is 1.73. So, 1.73 = A ÷ 50 feet So, A is equal to 1.73 multiplied by 50, which is 86.5 feet. Like this you may calculate the distance between stars.
