A horizontal curve with radius = 1000 40° 10’ 20” feet will be used to connect the two tangents. Compute the degree of curvature, degree tangent distance, length of curve, chord distance, middle ordinate, external ordinate, distance, PC and PT Stations. Solution: I = 56° 48’ 20” - 40° 10’ 20” = 16° 38’ 00...
