The shortest path between two points in a plane is a straight line but on a curved surface like that of the earth is the geodesic of the two points. The shortest distance from points A to C is b; between points B and C is a; and between points A to B is c. 512 views · View 4 Upvoters · Answer requested by. Justin Jesmok. Consider your living room, What is the shortest distance between a point A at the center of floor and a point B at the ceiling fan directly above it. In 3 D world it will be straight line from point A to B as you can travel height (3 rd dimension) but in 2 D world, you have to travel along the walls to reach from point A to point B.

Its people, he said, hail from every corner of the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Europe and live in houses, apartments and condominiums (not igloos), drive cars and ride subways, streetcars and buses (not dogsleds) and don’t have pet bears or moose.

On a three-dimensional sphere the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line, it is a curve. Again, if we were to try to move the string away from its natural curve it would push against us. If we were to look at a surface of a sphere that isn’t smooth but has mounds, the string would take a path that is the shortest through them. If the string went over mounds, they would push back against the natural course of the string. Now consider the four dimensional space-time continuum. In this case the shortest distance involves time

A line is the shortest distance between two points. A point is also theoretical and has no dimensions, so there is no shortest distance. I can't understand what this question asks, but it seems to be asking for that particular answer. A imaginary line that follows the curve of the earth the shortest distance between two points on a globe?

To unearth a lesson in the midst of turmoil or irritation would probably require the serenity of the Dalai Lama, so for the rest of us, the best we can do is try to better ourselves after the fact.

If I had just plodded through the first traffic jam I encountered, it would probably have cleared out eventually and I'd have gotten there in much less time with much less panic. So, in the clear light of dawn, it made me think of America under the Bush administration, deep into the deadly traffic jam of a war that we got into under false pretenses (let's please not forget the WMDs that were never there). The stated goal of this president is peace.
