Chapter 2 - Globe: Latitudes And Longitudes

Question and Answers
Question 1: Answer the following questions briefly.
a) What is the true shape of the earth?
b) What is a globe?
c) What is the latitudinal value of the Tropic of Cancer?
d) What are the three heat zones of the Earth?
e) What are parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude?
f) Why does the torrid zone receive maximum amount of heat?
g) Why is it 5.30 p.m. in India and 12.00 noon in London?
Answer:

a) The earth is not a perfect sphere. It is slightly flattened at the North and the South Poles and bulges in the middle.

• Frigid Zone

e) All parallel circles from the equator up to the poles are called parallels of latitudes. The lines of reference running from the North Pole to the South Pole are called meridians of longitude.

f) The Torrid Zone receives the maximum amount of heat, as it is present between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The sun is exactly over the head once a year, on all the latitudes between these two tropics.
