## What is the distance between any two latitudes in KM?

Each degree of latitude is approximately 69 miles (111 kilometers) apart.

## What is the distance between two longitudes in KM?

A degree of longitude is widest at the equator with a distance of 69.172 miles (111.321 kilometers). The distance gradually shrinks to zero as they meet at the poles. At 40 degrees north or south, the distance between a degree of longitude is 53 miles (85 kilometers).

**What is the distance of 1 degree latitude in Kilometre?**

111 km

Approximate Metric Equivalents for Degrees. At the equator for longitude and for latitude anywhere, the following approximations are valid: 1� = 111 km (or 60 nautical miles)

### What is the distance between two latitudes Class 11?

approximately 111 km

-The distance between two successive latitudes is approximately 111 km and the distance of each degree at the equator is 110.567 km.

### Why is the distance between any two latitudes same?

Answer: The distance between two successive lines of latitude remain constant (111km) because latitudes run parallel to each other and never meets the other latitude. But distance between the longitudes decreases as they go towards the Pole. Finally, all longitudes meet at the Poles.

**Why is the distance between the lines of latitude always 111 kms?**

The distance between two successive lines of latitude remain constant (111km) because latitudes run parallel to each other and never meets the other latitude. But distance between the longitudes decreases as they go towards the Pole. Finally, all longitudes meet at the Poles.

## How do you find the distance between two latitude longitude points?

For this divide the values of longitude and latitude of both the points by 180/pi. The value of pi is 22/7. The value of 180/pi is approximately 57.29577951. If we want to calculate the distance between two places in miles, use the value 3, 963, which is the radius of Earth.

## What is the standard distance in km between two successive latitudes Why can’t we find the standard distance between two successive longitudes?

111km

The distance between two successive lines of latitude remain constant (111km) because latitudes run parallel to each other and never meets the other latitude. But distance between the longitudes decreases as they go towards the Pole.

**How do you find the distance between two longitudes?**

### Are latitudes equally spaced?

The gridpoints along each latitude (or parallel), i.e., the longitudes, are equally spaced. Thus, at each latitude, the distance between any two adjacent degrees of longitude is the same.

### Why is the distance between any two latitude same?

**How do you calculate distance between two latitudes?**

To calculate distance more accurately, you can further divide degrees of latitude into minutes and seconds. Each degree contains 60 minutes, while each minute contains 60 seconds. Simply divide by 60 the distance a degree covers to find the distance a minute covers, and divide by 60 again to find the distance a second covers.

## How many miles are in a degree of longitude or latitude?

Degrees of latitude are parallel so the distance between each degree remains almost constant but since degrees of longitude are farthest apart at the equator and converge at the poles, their distance varies greatly. Each degree of latitude is approximately 69 miles (111 kilometers) apart.

## What is the highest degree of latitude and longitude?

The approximate degree of latitudes is 69 miles apart, but this figure varies on a range from 68.703 miles near the equator to around 69.407 near the poles. A degree of the longitude has been recorded to be the highest at the equator at 69.172 miles at the equator.

**What is the difference between longitude and latitude?**

Latitude is defined by lines that are parallel to the Earth’s equator, whereas longitude is defined by lines that converge at the Earth’s poles and widen when close to the equator. Latitude lines have a range of 0 to 90° north and south, whereas longitude lines range from 0 to 180° east and west.
