Equator

Parent Category: Geography
The equator is a major line of latitude located at 0 degrees latitude. It divides Earth into the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
The Prime Meridian- Straight line, runs through Greenwhich,England, is 0 degrees longitude, splits the world into Eastern andWestern Hemispheres. The International Date Line- Much less of a Straight Line, runsthrough middle of the Pacific Ocean (Kind of), is where the day"switches" from one to...
African countriestraversed by the equator are:. São Tomé and Príncipe. Gabon. Republic of the Congo. Democratic Republic of Congo. Uganda. Kenya. Somalia. .
What water? You need to be more specific and clarify what you're talking about.
Covering 71% of the Earth's surface, there are five oceans. Theyare the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic and Southern Oceans.
Two important lines of latitude pass through the South America- the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn. The Equator passes through Brazil.
That area does not vary much from its relative position to the axisof the earth, so it is always kind of "bulging" toward the sun.
no it doesnt http://z.about.com/d/geography/1/0/V/A/equator.jpg
South America is almost half and half (not by mass, but by country). By mass it is mostly south of the equator. Ecuador, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Bolivia are the countries considered below the equator.
The equator is an imaginary line that runs around the middlesection of the earth. It is hotter there than at the north andsouth poles because the tilt of the earth on its axis causes theequatorial region to receive more direct sun rays than the poles.
Bogota is some 500 Kilometers (320 miles) north of the Equator, while Mexico City is some 2,100 Km (1,300 miles) north of such parallel. Bogota is much closer to the Equator.
The reason for the flattening at the poles, North and South. And the widening at the Equator is primarily due to two factors. The rotation of the Earth and the tidal buldge at the Equator, due to the Moon's gravitational pull on the oceans.
The only Asian country we can find with territory traversed by the equator is Indonesia .
Guam is above the equator.
South America including Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil.
The perimeter is estimated at 25,000 miles.
The distance between Vancover and the equator is 5482 km or 3407miles.
I think most folks would accept the North American continent as a good answer to that question, even though a little piece of Alaska's Aleutian Islands does tail off across the 180 meridian and into the eastern Hemisphere.
The only continent that the equator does not pass through is North America, Australia, Europe, and Antarctica.
It's not "used" for anything.
Answer . It drains straight... no spinning. I was recently at the equator in Kenya and they had a demo to show this. It was quite intriguing to witness!
The equator (0° latitude) passes through northern South America and the Tropic of Capricorn (nominally 23.5° S) passes through the south central part of the continent.
It is not guaranteed to be hot because of the topography. If there is a mountain on the equator, it will be cool. The two factors of a climate are how close they are to the equator, and the altitude of the area.
Yes, the equator passes through GABON.
Bosnia is North of the Equator.
mt Kilimanjaro lies just by the equator
Khartoum is nearly 16 degrees North of the Equator
Jerusalem is closer then Damascus to the equator
\nMore Than "almost." the sun hits right on the equator. In fact, if you have a flagpole on the equator, there will be no shadow at noon. But the equator is not the only place where this happens. This happens Up to the tropics (tropic of cancer and tropic of Capricorn).
It may have fewer hours of daylight, but it certainly doesn't receive less radiation.
Over Water, the equator and prime meridian meet over the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic ocean a few hundred kilometers off the coast of Africa, about 385 miles south of Accra, Ghana, and 650 miles west of Libreville, Gabon. Also the international date line (180 meridian) and the equator meet over...
No, it is north of the equator.
The sun is north of the equator for 6 months every year, and south of the equator during the other 6 months. In order to accomplish these gyrations, it crosses the equator twice a year ... on March 21 moving north, and on September 22 moving south.
Because areas near the equator receive too much solar radiation throughout the entire year. Areas near the equator never usually receive temperatures below 75 degrees Fahrenheit (with the exception of the chilly nights in hot deserts). Hope this has helped.
The countries near the equator are hotter the the countries fartherfrom the equator
Meridians are circular lines thatrun perpendicular to the equator.
The circumference of the Earth measured at the equator is 24,901.55 miles, or 131,480,184 feet or 40,075.16 kilometers, or 40,075,160 meters.
The equator is on the 0 degree latitude that is between the northand south poles. So obviously it is between the poles.
Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is located on the equator. It is inSouth America AND It is close to Brazil.
North America and Europe are both north of the equator.
There isn't any. This is probably the most widespread misconceptionwe see in this category of WikiAnswers ... the impression that there are a set of "lines", andwe have to pick the latitude we want out of the set of lines that we're allowed to use. You wouldn't ask "What's the number of the first...
it can produce convection current in the atmosphere
The state of Hawaii is closer to the Equator. The state of Alaska is closer to the north Pole. The half-and-half dividing line passes through the 48 contiguous other states.
Tropical Topsoil is thin and light
As we know that equator is a very very hot area.The air over it becomes warmer due to the heat of the sun and rises up. That is why air over the equator have low pressure.
The answer is both, Because the equator passes through Brazil, soparts of Brazil are both below and above the equator.
Every meridian of longitude is perpendicular to every parallel of latitude, and every parallel of latitude is perpendicular to every meridian of longitude.
A giant nuclear explosion would happen and we would all die.
That point is in the Indonesian portion of Borneo , about 250 miles due east of Pontianak.
Wisconsin is a big place. The Bayfield County Sheriff's office in Washburn, Wisconsin, is 3,226 miles (5,192 km) due north of the equator. From the intersection of State St. and Broad St., between City Hall and the Post Office, in Beloit, it's only 2,937 miles (4,727 km).
Only Australia and Antarctica are wholey in the southern hemisphere.
-- your shirt more often -- your latitude
The equator traverses territory of South America, Africa, and Asia.
Yes, exactly. Yes, exactly. Yes, exactly. Yes, exactly.
You would say 'north north west'.
yrs,because imagine a line going straight through a globe,and u will see Jamaica is bellow the equator,welcome! :)
the equator is a invisible line around the earth like a belt. It is about 40,075 kilometers long. About 78.7 % of it touches the oceans and about 23.3 % over land. It also separates the northern hemisphere from the southern hemisphere. same person who answered did Egyptians invented math. : D
The Equator runs through Ecuador, a country in South America.
they are MOUNTAINS. mountains are high in the sky.. where it is cold..
The expression for acceleration due to gravity is g e =GM e/r 2 Acceleration due to gravity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the center of the Earth and the object. The acceleration due to gravity produced in an object on the surface of the Earth is...

A region near the equator can only have snow at altitudes above around 4,500 metres or 15,000 feet. However, because of the lack of seasonality in temperature and limited seasonality in precipitation at the equator, once one reaches an altitude high enough for snow to stay on the ground for a day...
The Congo is the only river that crosses the equator in both a northerly and southerly direction.
The surface pressure is 1l1.3kPa
it effects the climate just as it effects south America or the Philippines it might be a little warmer there tho because its closer to the equator and always has the sun beating down on it
Depends. Cancun is much closer, if you look at it on a world map you can see how far it is.
Well in my research, i think that the rain forest is the closest.. The reason is because the rain forest has the most rain and i think because if you have the rain that is very tender and slight then you should be able to get near the equator.. Now i am 45 year old nerd that just answers these...
It's 13 degrees North of the Equator.
