I was going to post this on Earth-forum here but I thought that you guys here can help me better with this. I'm trying to get the radius of Earth on every latitude degree from 0° to 90°, knowing 0° at Equator is ~6378,137km and 90° at North/South Pole is ~6356,7523km (source Wikipedia). In Wikipedia there is formulas to calculate radius at any angle, but I dont have a clue how to calculate with it. Now to what I'm asking here:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone please explain to me (one that doesnt have even College education on mathematics) so that I could understand it? Best way to explain would be adding some examples like for 61° and 34°?

Now, I have been struggling with this for a very very long time, and I am already being really thankful for the one that explains this to me.
