half of base times altitude.

The altitude of a triangle is the distance from the line containing the base to the vertex. Draw the base and continue on outside of the triangle. Measure perpendicular from that line to the vertex.

By using Pythagoras' theorem: hypotenuse^2 minus base^2 = altitude^2

Area of a triangle = 1/2*base*altitude in square units Area = 45 square feet

An isosceles triangle can be considered as two right angle triangles joined together so use the tangent ratio to find its altitude: tan30 degrees = opp/6 (where opp is the altitude and 6 is half the base) 6*tan30 degrees = 3.464101615 units of measurement

As altitude increases, the temperature usually decreases in the troposphere, which is the layer of the atmosphere where weather occurs. This relationship is known as the lapse rate. The altitude of a base cloud can vary depending on the temperature and humidity of the air mass it forms in.

This cloud is located in the middle altitude category, known as an altostratus cloud. Altostratus clouds typically form between 2 to 6 kilometers above the ground.

Cloud base refers to the altitude above the ground at which the lowest portion of a cloud is observed. Cloud ceiling, on the other hand, is the height above the ground of the lowest cloud layer covering more than half of the sky. Cloud base is the specific altitude at which a cloud starts, while cloud ceiling is the overall height of the lowest cloud layer in the sky.

Laser Ceilometer

The base of a cloud layer is typically used to determine the height of the cloud layer. It is measured in feet above sea level and is used to indicate the altitude level at which the cloud layer begins.

altitude(height)=(Area * 2) /length(Base)

The low-altitude billowy cloud is called cumulus cloud.

A nephoscope is an instrument used to measure the altitude and angle of clouds in the sky by visually tracking their movement relative to the instrument. By observing the movement of clouds against the gridded field of view of the nephoscope, the observer can estimate the cloud base height and direction.
