Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Martha on Friday, June 15, 2012 at 9:23pm.

Assuming that the Earth is spherical and recalling that latitudes range from 0 at the Equator to 90 N at the North Pole, how far apart, measured on the Earth's surface, are Copenhagen (55.67 N latitude), and Rome (41.90 N latitude)? The two cities lie on approximately the same longitude. Do not neglect the curvature of the Earth in determining this distance.

The answer is supposed to be 1.53e+06 m. How do I find this answer?
