name two reasons for it being hotter in teh summer then in the winter:
the suns rays are more direct
and there is more daylight
In terms or earth's motion, define day and year
D=1 rotation axis
Y=1 revolution aroud sun
why is there a leap year?
because there are 365.25 days in a year, so every four years we combine the fourths of a day and make the year one day longer

Northern Hem.- July
Southern Hem- January
why does the heat equator extend farther into the northern Hemispere than the southern hemispere?
Because there is alot more land in the nerthern Hem.
