So in this problem, we have, ah, hardest flying at an altitude off 15 meter, which is a record straight to meter. We went. We want to find the minimum angles attended at the Hawks I to recognize mouse that is actually moving on the ground. Okay, so to do that, we're going to assume that the size of the mouse is 0.1 meter, which is s therefore the minimum angles attended at the hawks. Eyes would be there are minimum. This would be approximately data, which is ass over our and this is going to reserve 0.1 over 15 but our meters, So this will give me two times tender and three radiance.
