# Q. A TV transmission tower has a height of 140 m and the height of the receiving antenna is 40 m. What is the maximum distance upto which signals can be broadcasted from this tower in LOS(Line of Sight) mode ? (Given : radius of earth = $6.4 \times 10^6m$).

JEE Main JEE Main 2019

Solution:

## Maximum distance upto which signal can be broadcasted is $d_{max } = \sqrt{2Rh_{T}} + \sqrt{2Rh_{R}}$ where $h_T$ and $h_R$ are heights of transmiter tower and height of receiver respectively. Putting all values - $d_{max } = \sqrt{2 \times6.4 \times106} \left[\sqrt{104} + \sqrt{40}\right]$ on solving, $d_{max }$ = 65 km
