If a ship sailed due south from Iceland to Antarctica, it would sail through an angle of rotation of about 140° around Earth’s center. Find this measure in radians. Then, using 3960 miles for Earth’s radius, find how far the ship would travel.

140 degrees  x   pi radians/180 degrees = 2.44346 R

 

2,44346 R  x 3960 = 9676 miles
