# How do u use the formula for calculating the shortest distance between two points on the earth?

I know that the formula is cos theta=sin(lat1 x sin(lat2 +cos(lat1 x cos(lat2 x cos( long1-long2 so my questoin is, if you have 2 points and you put the lat and long into the equation, but how does cos theta fit into the equation? is that the distance? or when you get the answer, do [...]
