## How do you measure bearings?

You can measure the dimensions of a bearing by using a vernier caliper like the one below or measuring accurately with a ruler. All bearings will have an inner diameter (ID), an outside diameter (OD) and width (W). Bearings are sometimes referenced by these dimensions, in that order: **ID x OD x W.**

## How do you calculate bearing distance?

**Here is the formula to find the second point, when first point, bearing and distance is known:**

- latitude of second point = la2 = asin(sin la1 * cos Ad + cos la1 * sin Ad * cos θ), and.
- longitude of second point = lo2 = lo1 + atan2(sin θ * sin Ad * cos la1 , cos Ad – sin la1 * sin la2)

## What is difference between bearing and angle?

As nouns the difference between angle and bearing

is that angle is (**senseid)(**geometry) a figure formed by two rays which start from a common point (a plane angle) or by three planes that intersect (a solid angle) while bearing is a mechanical device that supports another part and/or reduces friction.
