    Hi, my name is blindman60,and I was wonderring if any of you intelectuals could write an equasion for me ???
    I would like to know;
    If a tree is x feet away from a powerline
    and the powerline is fifty feet high
    how tall would the tree have to be to come within five feet of striking the powerline
    if the tree were to fall directly toward the line (at a 90 degree angle)

    It just seemed like this was the place to go for an answer to this puzzle, since I do not have the ability or the smarts to figure it out on my own.

    If anyone is interested in helping me out with this, thank you so much in advance, and please let me know if you need any other info to plug in.

    Please excuse me for not knowing which forum in which to post my query.
