									                     Distances Using Latitude and Longitude


Convert the following distances. Show your work

1.     18 nm  _____ miles


2.     1350 nm  ________ miles


3.     2600 miles  ___________ nm


4.     582 miles  ________ nm




Calculate the number of nautical miles (and miles) you travel between the following two
locations. Show your work.

1.     13 N , 27W to 59 N , 27W




2.     52 N , 132E to 27S , 132E




3.     88S , 2E to 27S , 2E
4.   69S , 53W to 43 N , 53W
Calculate the number of nautical miles (and miles) you travel between the following two
locations. Show your work. (Remember one degree of longitude at any latitude equals
60 nmcoslatitude  ____ nm .)
1.      21S , 153E to 21S , 37E




2.      85 N , 3W to 85 N , 102W




3.      52S , 91E to 52S , 199W




Thought Question: In the last two sets of problems, either the longitude remained constant while
the latitude changed or the latitude remained constant whole the longitude changed. How would
you calculate the number of nautical miles traveled if both the latitude and the longitude
changed?
