Where you room on the planet has an impact on the job length. Areas on similar latitudes have similar day lengths wherein as various latitudes have different day lengths.

Latitude and also Longitude

Any ar on earth is explained by 2 numbers -- the latitude and also its longitude.

What is latitude?

Latitude speak you how much north or south the the Equator you are located.

It is measure up in degrees ranging indigenous 0° in ~ the equator to 90° at the poles. Latitude lines room imaginary lines the are significant every twenty levels north and south the the equator.

The Equator at 0° latitude divides the earth into the northern and southern hemisphere.

What is longitude?

Longitude is the ar of a ar east or west of a north-south line called the prime meridian.

Longitude is measure up in angles ranging from 0° in ~ the prime Meridian to 180° in ~ the International day Line. The longitude lines, or meridians as they are occasionally called, space imaginary lines every 20° eastern or west of the prime Meridian.

The element Meridian divides the planet into the eastern and also western hemisphere.

How walk latitude impact Day Length?

Locations on sdrta.netmparable latitudes have sdrta.netmparable day lengths wherein as various latitudes have various day lengths. Relying on the time of year, day size will either rise or diminish as areas progress north or south.

Day size at the Equator in ~ latitude 0° (the Equator) day size will be about 12 hours. Areas on the Equator have a sdrta.netnsistent 12 hours of day light every year round.

Moving away from the Equator as latitude boosts to 80° (polar one - phibìc or south) day length have the right to be seen to increase to 24 hrs or decrease sdrta.netme zero (depending ~ above time the year).

Land the the Midnight Sun and Polar Winters where the sun never ever rises.

In summer, the regions north the the Arctic circle enjoy between one and two month of Midnight sunlight – 24 hours of sunlight due to the relative tilt of the earth towards the Sun. That is the opposite listed below the Antatarctic circle (South Pole).

In winter, the areas north that the Arctic Circle suffer a 24-hour duration when the sun never rises over the horizon. This is resdrta.netgnized as the Polar Night. Again the is the opposite below the Antatarctic circle (South Pole).

Day length about the World

Good dates to investigate room the Solistice, June 21st (the longest work in the north hemisphere and the shortest work in the southerly hemisphere) and December 21st (the shortest day in the northern hemisphere and also the longest in the southern).
