The shipment of Great Circles
Trading came in one 40-foot container declared as "scales toys and other merchandise" but was found to contain used clothing approximately valued at around P7.
In other words, we show that forces cannot keep any such point at rest or make it move uniformly along a great circle
Any two great circles
will intersect in two points that are antipodes of each other.
We have devised a problem to test students' understanding of great circles
and to help them realise that the Earth surface covering a relatively small area can be estimated by plane geometry whereas that covering a relatively large area cannot.
A "straight line" in an elliptic plane is an arc of great circle
on the sphere.
The correct determination, for example, of the circumferences of great circles
at aphelion and perihelion seem to be beyond practical determination.
I comment on several of these propositions below, noting how they come out true if the terms 'right line' and 'straight line' (which Reid uses interchangeably) are taken to denote great circles
of the sphere (or segments of such circles).
The years provided further glimpses: Sanders at the twenty-fifth anniversary of On the Road's publication in Boulder, a ten-day celebration where not only attendees imbibed ritualistically but Trungpa Rinpoche swigged sake from the stage as he addressed the enclave, moving his arms in great circles
symbolizing OM, universal peace.
The meridians of longitude loop from the North Pole to the South and back again in great circles
of the same size, so they all converge at the ends of the Earth.
After consideration of various arrangements of framing, a treble intersection system of ribs, all of which lay on great circles
of the dome for the whole or part of their length, were adopted'.
Indeed, it resembles the geometry on the surface of a sphere, where all great circles
(those that divide the surface into equal halves) are finite in length and intersect.
Scanning the heavens in great circles
that pass through the north and south ecliptic poles, the German-built X-ray telescope imaged much fainter objects and achieved an angular resolution three times greater than the orbiting Einstein Observatory, which conducted a smaller X-ray imaging survey in 1979.
