Everyone knows that Earth is not flat in nature. Therefore, Cartesian Coordinate Plane (Rectangular Coordinate Plane) formulae are not suitable for coordinate geometry on OSM.

May I ask how to calculate the following 3 items: 1. Distance between 2 points and their bearing. 2. The coordinates of a point from a point with given distance and bearing. 3. The coordinates of the intersection point of any 2 lines.

These questions are not OpenStreetMap specific and answers can easily be found with search engines (or, failing that, on gis.stackexchange.com).
