A plane is flying at the height of 5000m above the sea level .at a particular point, it is exactly above a submarine floating 1200m below the sea level. what is the vertical distance between them?

Given: A plane is flying at the height of 5000m above the sea level

At a particular point, it is exactly above a submarine floating 1200m below the sea level

To find: The vertical distance between them.

Solution:

Vertical distance between the plane and the submarine = $5000m - (- 1200)m$

=$ 5000 + 1200$

=$6200$

Therefore, vertical distance is 6200
