The second solution can be disregarded since distance from the station cannot be negative. For a LORAN system to accurately position a ship using this system of equations, the ship will need to first have a general idea of where it is in relation to the stations to select the appropriate solution. It should be noticed that the as the initial guess increases the answers fluctuate between the possible solutions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
