Transcript

in this problem of scientific measurement, we have given that 1° latitude on earth surface Equals 60 nautical miles. So this is your 60 nautical miles Is equal to one degree. So this is 1° On nautical miles. Here, one nautical mile we have given that one not typical mild Equals 1.151 Stat. Itude Miles. So this is here equals to one 151 Statute. Here is there doot? My I stated my. In the distance over land that we normally associate with the unit mile. So stated, doing Miley simply, this is miles. We have to calculate the circumference of the earth in the state of a mile. So first we have to start with the digi As there are 360° latitude around the circumference of the Earth. So we can say Sir confidence of art is equal to 360°.. And now institute miles. So this is here, or we can say simply mild Is equal. So this is 360° latitude. So this will be 360° latitude. This is here degree latitude. And now we have to convert, This is 1° latitude. So first we have to…
