Q.4 A plane is flying at the height of 5000 m above the sea level. At a particular point, it is exactly above a submarine floating 1200 m below the sea level. What is the vertical distance between them?
Height of the flying plane = 5000 m
Depth of the submarine = -1200 m
\(\therefore \)Distance between them
= + 5000 m – (-1200 m)
= 5000 m + 1200 m = 6200 m
Hence, the vertical distance = 6200 m
