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

1Â° of longitude = about 69.11 miles along the equator. But all of the longitudes

come together at the poles, so the farther you are from the equator, the fewer

miles there are in one degree.

Number of miles in 1Â° of longitude = (69.11) x (cosine of the latitude)

# How many minutes are in one degree longitude or latitude?

60 minutes in each degree. The International Date Line is at around +180Ă‚Â° longitude. If we start moving to the West from +180Ă‚Â° longitude after 6 hours we will reach at …+90Ă‚Â° longitude position and after 24 hours we will reach at -180Ă‚Â° longitude which is nothing but our starting position. In this time (24X60=1440 minutes) our Planet moves 360Ă‚Â° in total. Now it is clear to realize that 1Ă‚Â° equivalent to 4 minutes.

# How many seconds are in every degree of latitude and longitude?

It is 3600 seconds for you have 60 minutes in every degree so there are 60 seconds in every minute.

# How many miles are in 32 degrees of longitude?

At the equator (25000 miles) there's about 69.4 miles per degree, so about 2222.2 miles. At the poles there would be no miles. In nautical miles it's 60 miles per degree …(of latitude, which stays the same).

# How many degrees of latitude and longitude are there?

Longitude is measured in degrees, minutes and seconds starting from the Prime Meridian which runs through Greenwich, England (O point of Longitude ) and proceeding 180 deg…rees East and West of the Prime, so all the way around the Earth comprises 360 degrees of longitude. The International Date Line is 180 degrees Longitude and the point where East changes to West, or vice-versa. If you were pick one longitude and mark every point on Earth that has it, you'd have a line that joins the north and south poles. For example, a Longitude of 32 degrees, 14 minutes, 30 seconds would put you somewhere on a line between the poles that passes just off the Eastern coast of the United States in the Atlantic. Locations East of the Prime are said to be in the Eastern Hemisphere, those West in are in the Western Hemisphere. Latitude is measured in degrees, minutes and seconds from the Equator to the geographic North Pole and the South Pole. Each degree is 60 minutes, and those minutes can be further refined into seconds to calculate precise positions on the globe. The north and south poles are 90 degrees north/south of the equator, respectively. For example, 45 degrees North Latitude would put you halfway to the North Pole from the Equator, which is 0 degrees Latitude. The Arctic and Antarctic Circles are the exact same latitude, but one is north of the equator and the other is south of it. Locations North of the Equator are said to be in the Northern Hemisphere, while those South of it are in the Southern Hemisphere. Coordinates on the globe are found by using both Latitude and Longitude - the Longitude places the point either East or West of the Prime Meridian, and the Latitude places it either North or South of the Equator.

# How many degrees longitude and latitude are there in the world?

Lines of longitude are measured from the 0Ă‚Âş line which runs through Greenwich, London. They are increased going east and going west - so the line opposite the one through G…reenwich is the 180Ă‚Âş meridian. This means that there is a total of 360Ă‚Âş of longitude..
Lines of latitude are measured from 0Ă‚Âş at the Equator, and are increased going north and south to a maximum of 90Ă‚Âş at each pole. This means that there is a total of 180Ă‚Âş of latitude.

# How many degrees latitude and longitude is the North Pole?

The north pole is located at 90 degrees north latitude and any longitude you want, because all of the longitudes on earth converge into a single point at the poles.

# How many degrees of latitude and longitude are on the globe?

Neat question. There are 180 degrees of latitude, and 360 degrees of longitude on the globe. Think of latitude as defining the angle formed at the earth's center between th…e equatorial plane and a line drawn from the earth's center to any given point on the earth's surface, you for example. If you are at the equator, the parallel that defines the equatorial plane, then the angle is zero degrees. 90 degrees north defines the north pole. From the equator the degrees also advance southward until you reach 90 degrees south, the south pole. The total is 180 degrees, but doing it this way with zero degrees at the equator makes it easier to compare north and south latitudes. The situation is similar with longitude. The Greenwich or prime meridian is zero degrees, and the continuation of this meridian beyond the poles is the defined location of the International Date Line, 180 degrees. Zero degrees and 180 degrees longitude are neither east nor west; they form the circle that separates east from west. Degrees of west longitude advance from the Greenwich meridian westward, toward the US. Degrees of east longitude advance from the Greenwich meridian eastward, toward Asia.
