At the equator, a degree of longitude is the same distance as a degree of latitude. One minute of latitude is equal to one nautical mile, so one degree equals 60 nautical mile. As you go north or south, the lines of longitude converge, coming together at the poles. So the distance (in nautical miles) of one degree of longitude is equal to 60 times the cosine of the latitude.
1 degree of latitude represents a distance of about 69.1 miles along the surface.
That would depend if you are looking at degrees of latitude or degrees of longitude. One degree of longitude represents less distance nearer the poles than it does at the equator. One degree of latitude represents the same distance anywhere on earth.
40Â° of latitude on the Earth's surface is a distance of about 2,762 miles.
For 1 degree of latitude, figure on 68.94 miles / 110.95 kilometers.
One decimal degree in latitude represents a distance of 111.2 km or 69 miles on the surface of the planet. The length of 1 minute of latitude (1/60 degree) is 1.853 km or 1.15 miles.
The width of one degree of latitude depends on the location. At the equator on degree is 68.71 miles. At latitude 40 degrees, one degree is 68.99 miles. At latitude 80 degrees, one degree is 69.38 miles.
at the equator one degree of latitude is 68.7 miles
In geography, it is the angular distance in degrees north or south of the equator.(the Equator has a latitude of 0o) The distance of a degree of latitude is about 69 miles
One degree of latitude is approximately 69 miles (111 km) apart. However, since the Earth is a oblate ellipsoid (slightly egg-shaped), the distance between a degree of longitude varies by a small range.
The lines of longitude radiate out from the poles. At their point of origin, i.e. at 90o latitude, there is no distance at all between the lines! However, at latitude 89o, very near the poles, the distance between the respective 'one degree' lines of longitude is about one nautical mile. At latitude 48.37o the distance along the line of latitude is 40 nautical miles And a 1o longitude difference along the equator (0o latitude) represents a distance of about 60.1 nautical miles.

One degree of latitude is equal to about 111.1 kilometers.
-- Each degree of latitude, anywhere on Earth, is about 69 miles in a north or south direction. -- Each degree of longitude covers a different distance, depending on the latitude. At the poles, any number of degrees of longitude cover zero distance.
AnswerThere is no standard set of "lines", and no standard distance between them. A 'line' can be drawn at any latitude, or not.One degree of latitude represents about 111.1 km or 69 statute miles,regardless of how many lines are or are not drawn in it.
Only at the equator. The linear distance covered by 1 degree of longitude gets progressively smaller as you progress towards the poles, but 1 degree of latitude remains constant.
one minute of latitude is approximately 1.15 miles (1.853 km). You can just divide that by 60 to get the distance for one second and multiply 60 to get 60 minutes.
No, the distance of latitude is constant regardless of whether it is at the polar regions or the equator.
Since there are 60 minutes in one degree, and 60 seconds in one minute, there are 3,600 seconds in one degree of latitude !
The number of miles in one degree of latitude depends on how far you are from the equator.
One minute of latitude represents 1 nautical mile
One degree of latitude equals 60 nautical miles. One minute of latitude equals 1 nautical mile.
hello i like cheese
One degree is 69.11 statute miles, corresponding to0.01147 degree (52.1 seconds) per mile.BUT ...This is true for latitude anywhere on Earth, but it's only true for longitudealong the equator.All meridians ("lines") of longitude meet and merge at the north and southpoles. So as you get farther from the equator, one degree of longitude marksless distance.For longitude anywhere on Earth . . .Distance for one degree = 69.11 miles times cosine(latitude) .Degrees per mile = 0.01447 divided by cosine(latitude) .
