Expert Answer:

Parallax is an apparent displacement or difference of orientation of an object viewed along two different lines of sight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between those two lines. This method is used to find the distance between stars and planets and also their diameter.

                 Angle subtended = arc / distance
