The Equator

Why is it warmer near the equator?

Have you ever wonder why it is warmer near the equator, and other things about the equator like what is the equator and where did the equator get its name from.

The equator is an imaginary line around the middle of the planet. It runs across the widest part of the earth, it divides earth into two equal parts, the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere. The equator is at 0º degrees latitude at the centre of the earth. Scientists estimate that the equator geos for about 24,902 miles around the earth.

The equator took its name from span because span is located near the equator. It took its name in 1830. The Spanish call it ‘’el Ecuador’’. The Equator was discovered and mapped out by a French geodesic expedition team that was led by an explorer named Charles-Marie de La Condamine in the year 1736. It is identified as the latitude that falls at the point that is equidistant from the North Pole and the South Pole.

The reason it is warmer near the equator is because of the earths direct angle and because of earths seasons and the equator revises energy from the sun. Countries that are further north or south of the equator experience a change in seasons.  Because the sun is always directly overhead at the equator.

Every time they measure the equator around the earth it is around the same size 149, 6000,000 km. The first person to measure the equator was Cassini in 1672. Earths orbits is 100000 times closer than Oost cloud. The Oost cloud is a layer of icy objects that are in the solar system.

When sailors cross the equator they have a tradition for all sailors and when they cross they hold ceremonies and they also become a part of a club, they can chose if they won’t to become a part of the club because some people might not want too. Those who have never “crossed the line” are known as “pollywogs”.

These are most of the facts about the equator I hope you learned something new about the equator and how the equator works and much more to learn about the equator.

This is the equator effecting how the sun gets to earth and how the seasons effect the weather too.
This is the equator and it is showing how it works with the sun and how it works with the two poles the North Pole and the South Pole.
