The signal length from satellite to the earth station (AC) can be found as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2(H)/[{sin^2(theta)+(2(H)/R)}^1/2+sin(theta)] Due to the earth projection

where "H" is satellite height and and R is the earth radius

My question is Can you help me to derive this equation? how they have obtained it?

Regards
