19Mr. Pearl is vacationing on Slide Mountain Mr. Pearl is vacationing on Slide Mountain. What is his latitude and longitude?(1) 42° 0’ N, 74º 27’ W(2) 41° 55’ N, 74º 30’ W(3) 42° 10’ N, 75º 5’ W(4) 42° 1’ N, 74º 35’ W
20Which location is closest to Dub Set (White Plains, NY)?(1) 41° N latitude, 74º W longitude(2) 42º N latitude, 74º W longitude(3) 43º N latitude, 76º W longitude(4) 44º N latitude, 75º W longitude
25How can we determine longitude? Earth constantly rotates,Let’s calculate its rate…The sun only faces one side of the Earth at a time (12 noon), hours change East or West of the sun.Longitudes can be determined from time. (And time from longitudes!)
26West is earlier (AM), and east is later (PM)! 15o / hr !Earlier(not yet noon)Later(past noon)If it is 12 PM (noon) at 0o, what time is it at 180o on the other side of the Earth?12 PM (Noon)12 AM (Midnight)!
35Polaris is the last star in Ursa Minor (The Little Dipper). Ursa Major (The Big Dipper) helps point you to Polaris.
