For yachts in commercial survey, the Great Circle
Oceanmaster[R] life rafts (four to 12 person capacity) are manufactured to ISO 9650 Group 1, the new international life raft standard for blue water, ocean applications.
They passed through the entryways to the Octagon or Great Circle
or moved along processional walkways defined as "visitor" rather than "relative" American Indians have not been granted cultural authority at earthworks sites to take on roles such as steward, spiritual leader, or tribal interpreter, because there has been no formal tribal presence in the region for more than 160 years.
The great circle
is the equivalent of the Euclidean straight line, it has the finite distance and it is closed.
Consider first the (N + M)-body problem (with N, M [greater than or equal to] 3 and odd) of equal masses, in which N bodies rotate along a great circle
of a great sphere at the vertices of a regular N-gon, while the other M bodies rotate along a complementary great circle
of another great sphere at the vertices of a regular M-gon.
The buttons down the left-hand side allow you to rotate the sphere, move an element, insert a new point, insert a new great circle
(called a 'line'), insert a new geodesic (called a 'segment'), or insert a new circle.
We should use this opportunity to tell them that one nautical mile is the length of the arc along a great circle
subtending an angle of one minute and that one knot equals one nautical mile per hour, and ask them about the way to calculate the distance along a circle of longitude, in nautical miles, without converting the latitudinal difference into radians (the latitudinal difference in minutes is the distance in nautical miles).
A completed "straight line" in the elliptic plane is a great circle
on the sphere.
The Licking County Visitors and Convention Bureau is relocating its offices to the Great Circle
area of the Earthworks.
A Guide to Planning and Cruising The Great Circle
Route Around the Eastern USA is an excellent pick for any serious nautical library, offering here the second edition of a voyage the author refers to as the 'longest one-way inland cruise possible in the U.
The circumference of a great circle
in Einstein's gravitational field is given by
Despite our differences, we're all part of the great circle
It is not quite the same as the angular separation (measured along a great circle
on the sky) or the difference in right ascension (measured along the celestial equator).
