Solved: Navigation Long distance radio navigation for aircraft and ships usesChapter 10, Problem 51
(choose chapter or problem)
Navigation Long distance radio navigation for aircraft and ships uses synchronized pulses transmitted by widely separated transmitting stations. These pulses travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second).The difference in the times of arrival of these pulses at an aircraft or ship is constant on a hyperbola having the transmitting stations as foci. Assume that two stations, 300 miles apart, are positioned on a rectangularcoordinate system at points with coordinates and and that a ship is traveling on a hyperbolic path with coordinates (see figure).
