Let the height of the tower AB is h and the angle of elevation from the ground at point C is \angle ACB = 30^o
According to question,
In the right triangle \Delta ABC,
\tan \theta = \frac{AB}{BC} = \frac{h}{30}
\tan 30^o =\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}=\frac{h}{30}
the value of h is 10\sqrt{3} = 10(1.732) = 17.32 m
Thus the height of the tower is 17.32 m
