Answer :

Longitude is the angular distance of a place east or west of the meridian at Greenwich, England. It is represented in degrees.


One rotation = 360o


The time required for the earth to complete one rotation or 360o = 24 hours


The difference in degrees between any two consecutive longitudes is 1o


thus, the difference between the local time of any two consecutive longitudes = 24/360 hours = 0.066 hour


1 hour = 60 mins


0.066 hour = 4 mins
