Given that

A and B are two opposite points on Earth

Subtended central angle \theta = 1 \degree 54'

Diameter of the earth S = 1.276 * 10^{7} m

Distance between the earth and moon = d  


Step 1: Create a figure based on the details provided.


Step 2: Calculating the distance between the earth and moon

Convert degrees minutes seconds to radians

\theta = 1 \degree 54' = 114' = 114* 60'' = 114 * 60 * 4.085* 10^{-6}

\theta = 3.32* 10^{-2} rad


From the figure

AB is a diameter of the Earth  

Assumption: AB is considering as a arc.

Arc length S = \theta d

d = \frac{S}{\theta}

d = \frac{1.276 * 10^{7}}{3.32* 10^{-2}}   

d = 3.84 * 10^8 m

Hence, distance between the earth and moon d = 3.84 * 10^8 m
