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

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

How does Earth's tilt affect the solar radiation received by different latitudes?

When either the southern or northern hemisphere is tilted towards our star, the Sun, more of the Sun's radiation hits each square meter of the surface, in that hemisphere. Al

How does solar energy affect earth?

Well, solar energy can't really effect the earth but there are some impacts: it is very weather dependable, the actual manufactured of solar cells uses a lot of energy and rel

How does the angle of the sun affect the amount of heat received on different parts of the earth?

the earth is tilted so the north pole that we normally think of, isn't the actual north pole. what it is is the magnetic north pole (where compasses point). but that's not re
