2
Learning Outcomes Find the shortest distance between two points on the surface of the earth.

3
A B (37 o N, 54 o W) (37 o N, 126 o E)

4
A B

5
A B (37 o N, 54 o W) (37 o N, 126 o E) 180 o Answer

6
The distance between A and B = 180 o x 60 = 10 800 nautical mile

7
A B

8
A B 37 o O AOB Next 0o0o

9
AOB = 180 – (37 o x 2) = 106 o Back

10
The distance between A and B = 106 o x 60 = 6 360 nautical mile

11
Conclusion The shortest distance from one point to another on the surface of the earth is along a great circle.
