at 18.16 in Malindi, at what time does it set in Kisumu ( nearest minute). 5. Lagos is (6 0 31 1 N, 3 0 26 1 E) ; George town is (6 0 31 1 N 58 0 12 1 W). a. If 1 want to telephone someone in Lagos so as to catch him at 09.00 hours local time, at what time should 1 make the call in Georgetown? b. How far a part are the two places. i. By great circle (nautical miles) ? ii. By great circle (km)

iii. By parallel of latitude (km)? 6. A ship sails at ten knots from Easter Island (27 0 S, 109 0 30 1 W) towards the Tubuai Islands (27 0 S, 144 0 W). How much longer does the route between the groups of Islands take via the parallel of latitude than by the great circle route? 7. A plane flying at 600km vertically above the North Pole is just visible from the latitude of X 0 N. Determine the value of X ( use R = 6370km and π = 22 / 7 ). 8. Two towns A and B lie on the same latitude in the northern hemisphere. When it is 8.00am at A, the time at B is 11.00 am. a. Given that the longitude of A is 15 0 E, find the longitude of B. b. A plane leaves A for B and takes 3½ hours to arrive at B traveling at a long a parallel of latitude at 850 km/h. Find. (i) The radius of the circle of latitude on which A and B lie. (ii) The latitude of the two towns (Take R = 6371km). 9. Two planes A and B take off at the same time form their bases at (75 0 N, 67 0 W) and fly to another base at (75 0 N 113 0 E). Both planes fly at the same speed but plane A follows the shortest route over the North Pole while B follows the route along parallel of latitude 75 0 N. What is the position of B at the moment A is landing? (R = 6, 4000Km). 10. A plane is just visible from 20 0 S while flying at a height of X Km vertically above the South Pole. Taking R = 6370Km, calculate the height X to nearest km. 2

    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.
