On 19th Jan 2008, PM at ship in DR 40˚ 16’S 175˚ 31’E, the sextant altitude of the sun’s LL was 43˚ 27.4’ when the GPS clock showed 03h 48m 00s. If IE was 1.5’ on the arc & HE was 22m, find the direction of the LOP and the longitude where it cuts the DR latitude.

can you tell how you have calculated gmt in 1st question
2nd and 3rd point of the note is also wrong. Correct one is when the sun (and star) is east of the meridian it’s AM, at that time LHA is between 180-360 so P= 360°-LHA. when the sun and (the star) is west of the meridian at that time LHA is between 0°-180° , and LHA=P . Correct ans of the question is P= 49°38.8°… long=175°15.8°…. az=N80.1W or 279.9° true
The value of P is wrong. It should be 52°0.1′. Hence LHA would be 52°0.1′ and longitude = 004°29.6’E
Calculate latitude course and speed error for following ship
A)ship steering 230°T at 22.0 knots in latitude 41°24S
B)ship steering 140°T at 15.0 knots in latitude 56°00N
Please solve this problem argent machinical project hy
