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


what is the heat equator?

the line that shows the hightest/hottest temperatures


during which month does the heat equator extend the farthest into each hemispere

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.

Murcury
Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranius Neptune Pluto 

calculate number of seconds in a year

3600/hr*24hr/day*365d/yr= 31,536,000sec


calculate number of inches in one AU

93,000,000/au*5280ft/mi*12ft/
in= 5,892,480,000,000 

how many minutes it take light to get from the sun to the earth.

93,000,000/au*s/186,000*1min/
60sec= 8.33..min 

how many AUs in one LY

186,000mi/1sec*60sec/min*60min/ hr*24hr/d*356d/yr= 5,865,696000000mi/yr/93,000,000/au=36072/ly


100mi/h is how many ft/s

100mi/hr*5280ft/mi*3600/sec= 528000/3600=146.66..

D=m/v
m=1.000kg=1000.0g v=100.0mL 1000.0/100.0 D=10.0
