Question

Question 14

On a sunny day, does a bird or an aeroplane flying high in the sky cast its shadow on the ground? Under what circumstances can we see their shadow on the ground?


Solution

No. An aeroplane and a bird do not cast a shadow on the ground when they are flying high in the sky. This is because shadow will get smaller as distance increases. They can cast a shadow only if they are at some lower height, i.e if they are near the ground.
