Transcript of Latitude

Latitude & Longitude
Northern Hemisphere
The Northern Hemisphere is exactly half of the earth. Hemisphere literaly means "half sphere." The earth's Northern Hemisphere contains most of the plant's land. It almost takes up 90%.
Southern Hemisphere
The Southern Hemisphere is the part of the rotating astronomical body that lays South the equator. The Southern Hemisphere is also half of the Celetial Shere and that is South of the celestial equator.
Longitude runs vertical and goes East and West. It ranges from 0˚ at the Prime Meridan to 180˚ eastward
Latitude runs horizantal but runs from North to South. It goes 0˚- 90˚.
The equator is the intersection of the sphere's surface and the earth's plane perpendicular to the sphere's axis of rotation and its midway between the north and south pole.
Prime Meridian
The Prime Meridian is the oppisite in the 360˚system. The 180˚th meridian it forms a great circle.
Western Hemisphere
The Western Hemisphere is also called the occidental hemisphere. It is used mainly used in a geographical term for the half of the earth and it lies on the West and the other which is the Eastern Hemisphere or also the oriental sphere
Eastern Hemisphere
The Eastern Hemisphere is also called the "Oriental" sphere. It is also used in a curtal sense as a synonym for the " Old World"
Global Grind
It uses both the parallels of latitude, longitude, and the Prime Meridian. When it gives a location in latitude and longitude. Latitude will always come first. (ex: the location of New Orleans is 30N, 90W) this syassays that as 30˚ north latitude, and 90˚ west longitude
Tilt of the Earth
The axial's tilt is, also known as obliquity, is the angle between an object's rotanyional axis or its orbit axis.
Number of Latitude
The whole range is 180˚ and that means it is 90˚ north and 0˚ at the equator and another 90˚ South.
The whole range 360˚and that means it goes 180˚East 0˚ at the Prime Meridan and then another 180˚ going West.
Number of Longitude
