How do longitudinal and latitudinal locations influence the duration of the day and night and time along the standard meridian of India?
● The tilt of Earth’s axis causes different areas to receive different amounts of sunlight during one rotation.
● The greatest difference in duration of day and night is at the poles, where the amount of daylight can range from zero to twenty-four hours, depending on the time of the year.
● As you move away from the poles to the Equator, the change in the amount of sunlight from season to season decreases. Even though the poles receive twenty-four hours of sunlight one day per year, the rays are very indirect, which means the amount of energy (especially heat energy) is reduced greatly.
