## partyrainbow276 3 years ago Explain how weather changes throughout the year.

1. zepp

Rotation of Earth.

3. zepp

Earth isn't completely vertical, it's inclined of about 23 degrees

4. ohmai

Well uh, weather is affected by many things, ie general climate, wind patterns, location on the earth, ocean currents. because of a location's angle towards the sun based on the orbit.... ehhh fk this im taking a nap.

Explain.....

And that's a HUGE change. So, when the Earth is like this|dw:1336091153355:dw| The top part is recieving more light from the sun, so more heat, that makes summer and the lower part gets little of light, so little of heat, that makes winter

7. redeye

when the sun hits part of the Earth, it warms up the closest part to it. When we are at different lengths from the sun because of the tilt we receive different heats

8. zepp

And while the Earth rotates from summer to winter, the top part (Let's use North America) will get into the part that's will be farther than the rest

The square is North America

11. redeye

|dw:1336091377228:dw| more sun hits the square on the left than the right.

12. redeye

good drawing by the way

13. partyrainbow276

is this right? When the sun hits part of the Earth, it warms up the closest part to it. When we are at different lengths from the sun because of the tilt we receive different heats and while the Earth rotates from summer to winter, the top part (Let's use North America) will get into the part that's will be farther than the rest.

14. zepp

as you can see, on the left side, the North America is at the place where that's the nearest of the sun, on as it's rotates to the right side, North america is at the place where the distance from Earth to the Sun is the farthest, on Earth.

15. zepp

Yes! And all that because of the tilt of 23 degrees

16. redeye

Yes, it seems like you got it

17. zepp

That's why the equator is always hot, because it's at the same distance to the sun no matter on what position is the Earth.

well thanks!

Np ;)
