Explore what causes seasons on Earth in this interactive produced by WGBH and adapted from NASA materials. The interactive features four cities at different latitudes (New York City, Miami, Singapore, and Melbourne) and provides information about their seasonal conditions at eight points in Earth's orbit. Illustrations show how the Sun's path through the sky and the angle of sunlight hitting Earth's surface vary depending on latitude of a location and Earth's position in its orbit. Text boxes describe the shape of Earth's orbit, how the duration and angle of sunlight influence the energy received at Earth's surface, and seasonal lag.

Earth is in constant motion. Approximately every 365 days, Earth completes one revolution around the Sun, and approximately every 24 hours, Earth completes one rotation around its axis. Because Earth's axis of rotation is not perpendicular to the plane of Earth's orbit it is tilted about 23.5 degrees the way in which the Sun's light hits Earth's surface varies during the course of the orbit. The seasons predictable patterns of temperature and precipitation over the course of each year that locations on Earth experience are due to a combination of the tilt of Earth's axis and its place in its orbit.

The angle at which light strikes a surface greatly affects the amount of energy that the surface receives. For example, when a flashlight is positioned directly over a piece of paper, all the light is concentrated on a given circular area of the paper so that the paper receives direct, intense light from the source. However, if the paper is tilted and the same amount of light hits it at an angle, the light is spread out over a greater area and the intensity with which it hits that area is reduced. This idea also applies to the energy radiating from the Sun.

    i had an entire class on essay writing.aka us history AP. in a standard, 5 paragraph essay, the thesis statement should be the last sentience in the first paragraph. every paragraph should be a minimum of 4-5 paragraphs. in the first paragraph, the first 4 sentences should be "background" sentences, preparing the reader or setting up the basic outline or background of your essay. in your thesis, take a stand and pick a side. your essay should be based on your opinion, and in controversial issues such as abortion, or gay marriage, pick a side (you re either strongly for it, or strongly against it) never "sit on the fence". a good theisis can start out like..."although many believe the decision to abort a child belongs entirely to the mother, no one should have the right to decide whether an unborn human being has the right to live or die." then, you choose 3 good reasons why you feel that way, and support each one with details in your body paragraphs. then, in a conclusion paragrpah, restate your thesesis in different wording and there you go! a PERFECT essay!

    Both born and naturalized citizens have equal rights and should be viewed as one forming a nation of diversity and culture. However, many born citizens take for granted their wonderful privileges they are given, and used it to exploit their own country and don t even bother thinking what sacrifices peole made to build this country. Foreigners that waited a grueling amount of time only to just have the opportunity to stay in the country know more about the history and how the country grew, proving they want to be part of this culture, and that s wonderful. As a reward, they get the right to be called Americans, or where ever country you are righting your paper on.
