14. A nautical mile (nmi) is the distance on the Earth’s surface
that subtends an angle of 1 minute (or1/60 of a degree) of the
Great Circle arc measured from the center of the Earth. A knot
is a speed of 1 nautical mile per hour.
a. Given that the radius of the Earth is 6370 km, show that 1 nmi
is approximately equal to 1.853 km.
b. Calculate how long it would take a plane to fly from Perth to
Adelaide (a distance of 2130 km) if the plane can fly at 480
knots.

subtends an angle of 1 minute (or1/60 of a degree) of the Great Circle
arc measured from the center of the Earth. A knot is a speed of 1
nautical mile per hour.
a. Given that the radius of the Earth is 6370 km, show that 1 nmi is
approximately equal to 1.853 km.
((1/60)/360) x 2  (6370) = 1.853 km
