Convert spherical distance from radians to nautical miles
Convert Radians to Nautical Miles on Earth
Find the circumference of the Earth in nautical miles. By default, the
rad2nm function assumes your input is a measurement of the Earth, which is represented as a sphere with a radius of 3440.065 nautical miles.
nm = rad2nm(2*pi)
nm = 2.1615e+04
Convert Radians to Nautical Miles on Sphere with Specified Radius
Find the circumference of a sphere with a radius of 3432 nautical miles.
nm = rad2nm(2*pi,3432)
nm = 2.1564e+04
rad — Distance in radians
Distance in radians, specified as a numeric array.
nm — Distance in nautical miles
Distance in nautical miles, returned as a numeric array.
