**I’m not asking y’all to do classwork for me**
I just have a question to better understand geography. So we’re learning about great circles and such and how great circles bisect the earth and all that and anything that doesn’t equally bisect the earth is a small circle. North to south pole great circle. Equator is a great circle. My question is, how does that relate to flight navigation? I understand that great circles offer the shortest distance but how? And why? Some graphs from the lecture video I watch with a straight line path visually match the distance of the arc. Does the rotation of the earth also play a factor in this as well? And what is the rhumb line exactly?
