Hello all! I am a geologist, nowadays working in the oil industry, but also part-time (or as-much-time-as-I-can I should say) in my Ph.D, which is devoted to the investigation of Martian dikes; igneous structures which transport magma from deep within the crust to the surface.
The goal of all this is to complete a career switch, and become a full-time researcher in planetary geology.
With that strange profile, I am looking forward to contribute and engage in the discussion at scholar.social!

It took me 4 hours to solve this (this is my first physics class) and I got some interesting geometric results.
Before I show my teacher how I solved this (I used trig) I would like to understand how I was able to use 2D trig to solve this linear problem. Can anyone help? (A=ca2.2km)
