A. Ranking Instructions: Rank the time (from longest to shortest) that each location spends in daylight during the 24 hour rotation period. Ranking Order: Longest time 1 _____ 2 _____ 3 _____ 4 _____ 5 _____ Shortest time Or, the time spent in daylight for each location is the same. ________ (indicate with check mark). Carefully explain your reasoning for ranking this way: _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________

    We know the order B and C are opposite of each other The longer the water stays in daylight the hotter it gets.

    To figure which takes the fastest to rotate, you would use rotational speed formula.

    |dw:1442200518267:dw| Rotational speed depends on latitude. As you can see they all have different latitude.

    By using the rotational speed formula, Earth rotates the fastest at the equator and slowest at the arctic circle and antarctic circle.

    I know that higher angle have slower rotational speed, but B&D and E&C have the same angle. Trying to figure this out. Maybe Southern and Northern Hemisphere have different rotational speed.

    Notice in my attachment file that the lighter part in the north has the longest daytime period because the sun never sets.

    It is not flipped. It is just different than yours. You can just need to recognize pattern because it is not exactly the same.

    It is obvious that the darker side represents night and the lighter side represents dark.

    If you look at the attachment file, it says the sun never rises when the line only touches the dark side. The sun never sets when it only touches the light side. It has equal days and nights when the lines touches both the dark and light side at equal lengths. It has more days than nights when the lines touches the days more than night.
