In this question, use pie=3.14 and assume the earth to be a sphere of radius 6370km. The towns A and B are both on the circle of latitude 24° N. the longitude of A is 108° E and the longitude of B is 75° E.
Calculate , correct to the nearest kilometre,
a) the radius of the circle of latitude 24° N
b) the shortest distances between A and B, measured along the circle of latitude 24 ° N.
In this question assume that the earth is a sphere of radius 6370km.
The four arcs on the digram represent the equator, the Greenwich Meridian, latitude 6° N and latitude 52° N.
a) the Greenwich Meridian passes through London (52°N,0) and Accra(6°N,0).
i) Calculate to the NEAREST kilometre, the shortest distance between London and Accra along thier common circle of longitude. use pie= 3.14.
c) Tropical Strom Kyle was reported to be located 5 470km due west of Accra.
i) Calculate to radius of the circle of latitude on which K lies.
