What factors affect the solar energy earth receives?

The Sun's solar output is more or less constant (it is getting  hotter very slowly but over human time scales this is irrelevant)  and the planet Earth is not growing in dia

How the tilt of the earth affects the amount of solar energy?

the tilt of the earth can cause the amount of solar energy to change becase of the rotation and revolution of earth around the sun. you get different rays of light at differen

Why do latitudes differ in the amount of solar energy they receive?

Because of the earth's round shape the equator, is closest to the sun and the closer you get to the earths poles, you get further and further from the sun. Plus, since every

What determines the amount of solar energy absorbed by the earth?

Every location on Earth receives sunlight at least part of the year. The amount of solar radiation that reaches any one "spot" on the Earth's surface varies according to these

How does the earth's tilt affect different places on earth?

The Earth's tilt (we scientists say "inclination") is what gives us the seasons. If the words Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring are meaningful to you, you're affected.
