The distance from Tianjin to Médanos is about **20,000 kilometers**. A direct flight would take around **22 hours**, but there aren't commercial routes between these cities.

The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:

*Lat*: Latitude at the origin point._{O}*Lng*: Longitude at the origin point._{O}*Lat*: Latitude at the antipodal point._{A}*Lng*: Longitude at the antipodal point._{A}

Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Tianjin

The DMS coordinates are: 39°8'32'' N 117°10'36'' E. Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

*Lat _{O}* = 39.1422195°

* Lng_{O}* = 117.1766663°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

*Lat _{A}* = -

Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

*Lng _{A}* =

Since the longitude is positive, we substract 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would sum 180° for the same reason.

Result

The antipode of Tianjin is located on coordinates (*Lat _{A}*,
