Earth's circumference

Calculate the Earth's circumference of the parallel 48 degrees and 10 minutes.

Correct answer:

x =  26728.1018 km

Step-by-step explanation:

R=6378 km α=481060=48+1060=48 60+1060=289060=289648.1667 °  cosα=r/R  r=R cosα°=R cos48.1666666667° =6378 cos48.1666666667° =6378 0.666966=4253.90952 km  x=2π r=2 3.1416 4253.9095=26728.1018 km=2.673104 km
