    ecliptic is the path the sun appears to take through the heavens as a result of earth’s orbit. As we spin on our path around the sun, the position the sun occupies against the backdrop of the celestial sphere rotates. In addition to the ecliptic’s celestial implications, as earth’s tilt shifts from summer to winter, the plane of the ecliptic strikes earth in different hemispheres. From September 22st to December 21st, the ecliptic falls on the southern hemisphere, resulting in increased sunlight and warmth in the Southern hemisphere leading to spring and summer south of the equator. North of the equator, the opposite effect occurs: diminished light and warmth lead to fall and winter. After the spring equinox, the earth’s tilt reverses and the light and warmth of spring and summer come to the northern hemisphere. The ecliptic’s role in the development of the philosophy of science is evident in the explanations given for the obliquity of the ecliptic by the different theorists. Ptolemy’s geocentric theory where the ecliptic movement from north to south caused the seasons was later questioned by Copernicus, who believed that the earth rotated around the sun, and that the obliquity of the ecliptic was due to the tilt of earth’s axis (a belief we still hold today). Thus, truth was found in the evolution of science. 5. Epicycle Given a large circular path of rotation, an epicycle is a smaller circular rotational pattern fixed to the path of the larger cycle. Ptolemy used the…

The obliquity. The obliquity which is also known as the axial tilt, the obliquity refers to the curved movement of the earth axis in the connection to its plane in the orbit around the sun (Spradley, 2015:5).

  • Idiopathic Scoliosis Research Paper

    neurohormonal and transmitters and neuromodulators. According to Wynarsky and Schultz (1991), ideal correction of scoliosis is to bring lateral offsets and tilts and axial rotations to zero. However, this is impossible. Clinicians must decide if it is more important to correct lateral tilts or axial rotations and base their treatment options on their decision. Currently, bracing is the only widely accepted form of nonoperative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Asher and Burton…

  • Climate Change Argumentative Essay

    Climate change has been happening long before humans. However, the changes are minimal. Earth has been through many stages of global warming and cooling by natural causes. The variations in the Earth’s orbit can fluctuate how warm or cold the temperature can get. The closer the Earth is to the sun, the warmer the climate would be and the farther away from the sun, the cooler it would be. Other variations like the tilt and precession of Earth also affects the natural warming and cooling process…
