Two new solutions for an inverse problem on the length of the meridian arc are described in the paper. One is derived from a Taylor series expansion directly. Another is formulated by means of a Hermite interpolation. Both of the two solutions are sufficiently accurate up to 0.\"0001. Investigation in the paper show that the solution by means of a Hermite interpolation with much high accuracy should be recommended and implemented in practice.
