If you start at the equator and travel 10 degrees NORTH latitude, approximately how many kilometers or miles north of the equator will you be? Take the circumference of the Earth o be 40,000 km (24,900 miles). Show your calculations.
24, 900/360=69.2 miles
40,000/360=111.1 km/degree=1111 km
If you travel west through 10 degrees of longitude along the equator, the distance traveled will be very different from the distance traveled through 10 degrees of longtitude at 60 degrees N latitude. Why?
Meridians converge toward the poles. And so are closer together at 60 degrees North than at 0 degrees.
If it is 10:00 AM Monday in Denver, what time and day is it in New York City?
Monday 12:00 PM
If its 11:00 AM Thursday in Seattle, what time and day is it in Seoul, South Korea
Friday 3:00PM
A satellite image of the United States was taken at 0900Z What was the local standard time in Chicago?
3:00AM
If its Friday at 3:00AM, daylight saving time in Kansas City, what is the day and time in Quito, Ecuador where daylight savings time is not being observed?
Same time as Kansas City because both cities are located in the same time zone.
Your plane leaves Boston at 7am on Saturday and is bound for Los Angeles. the flight takes 5 hours. what time and day is it when you arrive in Los angeles?
Saturday 9:00am
Your connecting flight to Taipei leaves LA at 1pm on that same day. the flight takes 11 hours what is the time and day when you arrive in Taipei?
next day at 4pm
For a given latitude, if the stated time of sunset is 6:45pm at 90 degrees west, what is the time of sunset at 91 degrees west?
6:49pm
Are all of the lines of latitude parallel to each other on both the globe and the Mercator projection?
Yes they are parallel to each other.
Do all parallels and meridians cross each other at right angles on both the globe and the Mercator?
Yes
On a globe, the meridians converge toward the poles. Describe the pattern of meridians on the Mercator.
They are all parallel to each other.
Is north always straight toward the top of the Mercator projection?
Yes
How would the North pole be represented of the Mercator projection?
A top edge or straight top.
Could a single graphic scale be used to measure distances on a Mercator projection? Explain.
No, distance scale changes toward the poles.
On an Eckert projection, do all of the parallels and meridians cross each other at right angles?
No, the lines curve.
How does the Eckert maintain equivalence in the high latitudes (what happens to the meridians?)
They curve or you can say meridians converge toward the poles.
What happens to the shape of Greenland on an Eckert projection?
It moves North and part of it looks cut off.
Is north always straight toward the top of the Eckert projection? Explain.
No, need to follow meridians around toward the North Pole.
What is the latitude of the vertical (direct) rays of the Sun?
23.5 degrees
What is the Latitude of the Tangent Rays in the Northern Hemisphere?
66.5 degrees
What is the Latitude of the Tangent Rays in the Southern Hemisphere?
66.5
Why is the June solstice associated with the Southern Hemisphere winter?
Because the sun is the lowest in the sky in the Southern Hemisphere.
Why does the equator receive equal day and night?
Because the circle of Illumination is bisecting all parallels which means that all latitudes are expecting 12 hours of day and night.
What happens to the length of day (the number of hours of daylight) as you move north of the equator?
the number of hours of daylight get longer.
Within which range of latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere is 24 hours of daylight experienced?
In the Arctic Circle area up North. or you can say 66.5 degrees north to north pole.
Where is the North Pole?
On top of the world
Where is the South Pole?
On the bottom of the world
Where is the Equator line?
In the middle of the world
Where is the Tropic of Cancer line?
North of the Equator
Where is The Tropic of Capricorn line?
South of the Equator
Where is the Antarctic Circle?
In the bottom of the world.
Where is the Arctic circle?
On top of the world.
Where do tangent rays, vertical rays come from?
The sun.
<----TANGENT RAYS
<---- VERTICAL RAYS
<------ TANGENT RAYS
During a year, which of the 3 latitudes experiences the least variation in average daily insolation at the top of the atmosphere?
0 degrees
When the two maximums occur?
Equinoxes
When do two minimums occur?
Solstices
Explain the reasons for two maximum occurrences and two minimum occurrences.
Sun's vertical rays strike equator on equinoxes.
Where do surface ranges usually range from?
960.0 mb to 1050.0 mb
