The other factors influencing weather/climate are attributed to land/sea surface elements and bracing atmospheric currents. The angle of incidence of solar rays will be the latitude. So, no seasons then. Only local day-night weather and almost periodic climate conditions will prevail. Weather changes will be attributed to variation in.

    If the degrees of longitude are less beyond, or to the south of the equator, than upon it, then it is equally certain that the earth is. globular; and the only way to decide the matter, and place it beyond all doubt, is to actually measure a distance, to the south of the equator, at right angles to a given meridian, with non-expanding rods or. 40) An angular distance measured north or south of the equator from the center of Earth is termed A) longitude. B) latitude. C) zenith. D) Greenwich distance. Answer: B 42) An angular distance measured east or west of a prime meridian from the center of Earth is termed 43) How far north you live from the equator is measured as your _____, whereas an imaginary line marking all those places at.

      The numbering of the lines of latitude increase to the north and south as you leave the Equator, latitude 0°. However the actual distance encompassed by these lines of latitude decrease as one moves away from the equator and approach the poles. The equator is separated from the Arctic Circle by 66° 30′ of latitude. If, upon moving north from the equator, the distance from the earth’s center to the surface shortens by ½ mile for each degree of latitude, the distance from the earth’s center at the Arctic Circle is 33 1/6 miles less than at the equator.

Get this from a library. Calculations for ascertaining the latitude north of the equator: and the longitude west of Greenwich observatory, in England, of the Capitol, at the city of Washington, in the United States of America.

Be the first. Lines of latitude are parallel to each other. Therefore, any line of latitude above the equator is measured as X degrees north latitude; any below the equator is measured in X degrees south latitude (X is variable, e.g. 10 degrees, 2 degrees, and so on; the abbreviations N for north and S for south are also used).

Latitude is the measurement of distance north or south of the Equator. It is measured with imaginary lines that form circles around the Earth east-west, parallel to the Equator. These lines are known as parallel s. A circle of latitude is an imaginary ring linking all points sharing a parallel.

The Equator is the line of 0 degrees latitude. Meausures distanve north or south of the equator. Parallels. Lines used for measuring latitude; they run east to west "parallel" to the equator.

Equator. 0 degrees latitude, starting place for measuring latitude. North/ south poles. 90 degrees latitude; maximum latitude.

Top view of lattitude looks like. Values increase north of the equator and are considered positive and values south of the equator decrease and are sometimes considered negative or have south attached to them.

For example, if a latitude of 30°N was given, this would mean that it was north of the equator. The latitude ° or 30°S is a location south of the : Amanda Briney.

degrees. The lines of latitude are located east and west of the prime meridian. The region between 30° and Latitude is measured in degrees from 0° to 90° North (to the North Pole) or South (to the South Pole) from the Equator. If the circumference of the Earth is approximat km or 24, miles, then.

Which of the following statements is true. As latitude North and South of the equator decreases, average temperature decreases. The temperature of the sun's surface does not affect the earth.

The equator of a rotating spheroid (such as a planet) is the parallel (circle of latitude) at which latitude is defined to be 0°.It is the imaginary line on the spheroid, equidistant from its poles, dividing it into northern and southern other words, it is the intersection of the spheroid with the plane perpendicular to its axis of rotation and midway between its geographical.

Freddy is standing at 41 degrees North Latitude. Suzanne is at 12 degrees North Latitude. Which one is closer to the Equator?5/5. This would make the North Pole to Equator on FE 90 x miles = 6, miles.

Napolean, however, got in on the act and defined the metre as (Distance from North Pole to Equator)/10, making the North Pole to Equator dista km, or 6, miles. That would be the line of latitude 23 1/2 degrees North.

The Tropic of Cancer is at degrees, not It hasn't been at 23 1/2 degrees since around the year It is drifting south at the rate of degrees of latitude per year.

parallel of latitude: 1 n an imaginary line around the Earth parallel to the equator Synonyms: latitude, line of latitude, parallel Examples: show 4 examples hide 4 examples Antarctic Circle a line of latitude north of the south pole Arctic Circle a line of latitude near.

The distance between them is then to the cosine of the latitude. For example, I live near Oslo in Norway, at latitude 60 north and here, a degree of longitude is only half the distance of a degree of latitude because cos(60) =   Four of the most significant imaginary lines running across the surface of Earth are the equator, the Tropic of Cancer, the Tropic of Capricorn, and the prime the equator is the longest line of latitude on Earth (the line where Earth is widest in an east-west direction), the tropics are based on the sun's position in relation to Earth at two points of the : Matt Rosenberg.

The 11th parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 11 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial crosses Africa, the Indian Ocean, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Ocean, Central America, South America and the Atlantic Ocean. At this latitude the sun is visible for 12 hours, 46 minutes during the summer solstice and 11 hours, 29 minutes during the winter solstice.

The 23rd parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 23 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane, about 50 km South of the Tropic of crosses Africa, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, North America, the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean.

What is the distance around the world at 40 ° South Latitude. At which latitude is the distance around the world one-half of the equatorial distance. How many miles between a point 60 ° North Latitude and 30 ° West longitude and a point 60 ° North Latitude and 60 ° East Longitude.

Latitude lines measure the distance from the equator - either north or south of the equator. Latitude lines run from east to west. Term. Parallels: Definition. Lines of latitude look like circles around the globe and because they run parallel to equator, they are also called paralles.8.

Latitude is measured by using parallels. 9. The equator is a parallel. The equator is the base line for longitude. The latitude of the equator is 0°. Latitude must be described as N or S unless it is the equator. The base line for longitude runs from north to south through England.
