Latitude when Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration is Given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
earth_station_latitude = asin(Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration/(2*Angular Speed of the Earth*Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface))
λe = asin(aC/(2*ΩE*U))
This formula uses 2 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
sin - Trigonometric sine function, sin(Angle)
asin - Inverse trigonometric sine function, asin(Number)
Variables Used
Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration- Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration of magnitude
Angular Speed of the Earth - Angular Speed of the Earth's Rotation (Measured in Radian per Second)
Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface - Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration: 100 --> No Conversion Required
Angular Speed of the Earth: 100 Radian per Second --> 100 Radian per Second No Conversion Required
Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface: 50 Meter per Second --> 50 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
λe = asin(aC/(2*ΩE*U)) --> asin(100/(2*100*50))
Evaluating ... ...
λe = 0.0100001666741671
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.0100001666741671 Radian -->0.572967344857261 Degree (Check conversion here)
