A nautical mile is one minute of arc at the earth's equator. Since there are 60 minutes in a degree and 360 degrees in a circle, the circumference of the earth is exactly 21,6…00 nautical miles by definition. Because the size of the earth actually changes with time, temperature, proximity to the Sun, etc. This standard varies with time. After great debate, the international standard set a nautical mile as 6,076 feet. A statute mile consists of 5,280 feet. Thus, doing the math (6,076*21,600/5280) we find the circumference of the earth to be 24,856.36364 statute miles when using this method. (MORE)

A nautical mile (NM) is the distance, of one minute (60 minutes = one degree) of latitude along the Prime Meridian passing through Greenwich, England. Ships at sea used se…xtants and the stars to determine latitude, so it was easy to measure distance using a unit based on latitude. The statute mile is so named because it was standardized by an act of Parliament in 1593, i.e., a statute. It is also called a surveyors mile, or more commonly, mile. The mile is based on the old Roman unit of distance, the mil (meaning thousand) that was equal to one thousand paces (two steps). Stones were placed every mil along roads to indicate the distance to Rome, thus the term milestones, and the saying "All roads lead to Rome." 1 Nautical mile = 1.15 statute miles (MORE)

One nautical mile is defined by one latitude minute of arc (there are 60 such minutes to a degree). This equals 1852 meters, and roughly (but coincidentally) 2000 yards or 600…0 feet (technically, a standard nautical mile is 6076 feet, 6000 feet and 2000 yards are commonly used approximations, but produce an error of about 1%). The statute mile had a little fuzzier definition to start with, as one mile was the same as 1000 roman paces/steps. The definition has since changed, but one statute mile equals about 1609 meters. Further information on the definition and use of the word mile is given on Wikipedia. It is worth noting that in the the Wikipedia article there is an alternative expression to "nautical mile" given as "sea mile", care should be taken with this usage, as a Norwegian "sea mile" equals 4 nautical miles.

In Time Zones

As an approximation, the circumference of the earth is 24,000 miles. There are 24 hours in a day (but there are actually more than 24 time zones as there are some 1/2 hour div…isions). Ignoring this, there are thus approximately 24,000/24 hours = 1000 nautical miles per hour of time zone. (MORE)
