Sen. Longitude and Latitude
By the end of this topic, you will have a solid understanding of Sen. Fraction, Decimals, Percentages, and Approximations, and be equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to solve complex mathematical problems.
Longitude and latitude are important geographical coordinates used to identify locations on the Earth’s surface. In mathematics, understanding longitude and latitude is essential for mapping and navigation.
Longitude is the angular distance of a point east or west of the prime meridian, which is an imaginary line that runs from the North Pole to the South Pole and passes through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England. Longitude is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds, with 360 degrees representing a full circle around the Earth.
Latitude, on the other hand, is the angular distance of a point north or south of the equator, which is an imaginary line that circles the Earth at 0 degrees latitude. Latitude is also measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds, with the equator being 0 degrees and the North Pole and South Pole both being 90 degrees.
In this mathematics video tutorial, you can explore the concepts of longitude and latitude in greater detail, discussing their mathematical properties and their importance in various fields, such as cartography, astronomy, and geology. We also cover practical applications of longitude and latitude, such as finding the shortest distance between two points on the Earth’s surface and calculating time differences between locations.
