General Note: All the answers required from the Nautical Almanac, and HO 229 have been marked on the respective sheets; wih one exception, the Sunrise problem. You should have completed the Meridian (LAN) solution first. Therefore you can apply what you learned to figure out the arc to time conversion required in the problem. I did not mark Tables 27 and 28. You should have had sufficient knowledge in the Sunline (Part-1) and the Azimuth (Part-2) To figure out how to use and Interpolate These Tables. The correct answers of course would be found on information I provide for your worksheet.
