The Libyan Desert covers those areas mentioned in your question. It is a sub region of the larger Sahara.
Because this is just the way it is. Also it may be affected by the sun's gravity hold. Well, there is a reason and we cannot just give in and say it is the way nature wanted it. There is a reason for all that occurs in nature. First, one needs to understand how Earth came about. Many theories a…re out there with no real proof. As long as we do not have definite answers and go by theories, any rational response is a potential response to the question. One thing is certain though, is that electrons actually flow from negative towards positive potential nodes. (MORE)
Alexandria is on the north coast of Egypt. It is a mediterranian sea port to the west of Suez
The water body that is located in the east of Egypt is the Red Sea.
West of Egypt is The Western Desert covers about 700,000 square kilometres and accounts for about two-thirds of Egypt's land area. It spans from the Mediterranean Sea south to the Sudanese border and from the Nile River Valley west to the Libyan border.
North East of Egypt at the area where the States of Syria and Iraq are located
There is no sea west of Egypt.. The Red Sea is to the East, and the Mediterranean is to the North.. To the west of Egypt is the Sahara desert which goes all the way to the Atlantic ocean.
I have reaserched in many books and websites tofind this answer.The country west of Egypt is Sudan.
Ancient Sumer was east of Egypt. The two countries were separatedby the Red Sea and the Arabian desert.
stars do not move at all. what you are seeing is the earths rotation. The stars seem to set with the sun and the moon because weare turning. (earth's axis)
From East to West, it is the only planet in our solar system to do so. All the others rotate West to East. Comments: That's not quite true. Uranus is another one. Here's a bit of pedantry: It depends how you define the North pole of a planet. There are two ways to do that, unfortunately. On on…e definition, Venus actually rotates from West to East. However, nearly everyone ignores that and says Venus rotates from East to West. (MORE)
Depends on your location of reference, since the world is round it's actually both ways. If you head East you'll reach it, as well as heading West you will reach it as well. Historically The West being North America and Asia/Australia being East. So if your located in the America then Egypt is Eas…t, if your in Australia or Asia then Egypt is West. (MORE)
There are two: Algeria is to the west of Libya while Tunisia is to the northwest.

north is medeterranian sea east is red sea west is nile south is atlantic ocean
Yes . And no. Geographically, Egypt is in Africa, i.e. not in the Middle East. Politically and socially, Egypt is very much a Middle Eastern country.
Since the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the earthspins from west to east or clockwise.
There is no sea that borders Egypt to the west. The Mediterranean Sea borders Egypt to the north and the Red Sea borders Egypt to the east. " Libya " borders Egypt to the west.
Egypt is a country in North Africa. It is one of the countries of the "Middle East".
All of the planets orbit the Sun in a counterclockwise direction, as seen from above the Earth's north pole. However, only 6 of the 8 planets rotate counterclockwise (spin west to east). The 2 exceptions are Venus and Uranus. -- The planet Venus rotates very slowly clockwise. One suspected reason …is that long ago Venus was struck by a large protoplanet or asteroid, causing it to lose its original spin. -- The planet Uranus still has its rotational speed, but its axis is now tipped drastically by about 98 degrees, which changes how sunlight illuminates the planet's exterior. Again, the cause may have been a collision with a very large object, early in the history of the solar system. There are some other theories advanced as well. The current one is the "impact" theory as mentioned above. A large impact could change the direction of rotation or "flip " a planet over. If a planet is turned "upside down", then the original counterclockwise rotation automatically appears as clockwise rotation, from the usual viewing point. Obviously the spin axis of Uranus is at an unusual angle, but Venus could have an "axial tilt" of about 3 degrees or about 177 degrees, depending on how you look at it. For Venus, there are also theories involving "tidal forces" and its very dense atmosphere. There are theories involving gravitational interactions between bodies in the early solar system. There is a theory based on the "inherent stability" of retrograde rotation in the case of Venus. There are probably other ideas too. Still, the fact remains that Venus and Uranus do appear to rotate in the opposite direction compared with the other planets, for whatever reason. (MORE)
The Murray River flows from the east to the west. It begins in Australia's Snowy Mountains, flows to the west then takes a sudden southward turn to the Southern Ocean.
The Sahara covers most of Libya and Egypt as well as a number ofother countries.
The Libyan Desert - which is part of the Sahara Desert - is foundin Egypt and Libya.
Some of the countries west of Egypt are: India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afganisan, China, Japan, Koreas, Thailand, australia, etc.
Weather patterns usually move from west to east. Winds from the west, known as the prevailing westerlies, dominate at mid-latitudes, so a wind blowing all the way from Ireland to the U.S. East Coast is highly unlikely. That said, the global wind pattern is from the east at tropical latitudes from th…e equator to about 30 degrees north and south of the equator. Therefore, winds do blow to the west and can sometimes carry dust from Africa's Sahara Desert across the Atlantic to the Caribbean or even to the southeastern USA. (MORE)
Egypt is east of Libya while Algeria is west. Tunisia is also northwest of Libya.
No, south west . . Not really, Egypt is south east of Greece. Please, both of you, look at a map.
Lines of latitude can run both from east to west or west to east because the Earth is round and there is no designated start point for lines of latitude.
The jet stream (high altitude wind) travels from west to east. Ground level winds are more dependent on surface temperatures. However, there is a general trend of west to east in most areas.
not in continent for but yes there is a bridge going from Egypt toSaudi Arabia.
West to East especially across the Atlantic or Continental USA is faster. This is because of the jet Stream. Check any airline website and get flight details and you will see this is true.
This is one of the best questions to highlight the difference between true motion and apparent motion. The moon orbits the earth (the moon's true motion) from west to east; it moves anti-clockwise when observed from the north. The reason its apparent motion (rising in the east and setting in the wes…t) is different is because of the spin of the earth, which is much more rapid than the orbit of the moon. If you observe carefully, you will see that the moon rises later on a given night than it did the night before. This is because it advances in its west-to-east orbit during the course of the entire day, before the next moon-rise. (MORE)
It is not patently obvious which one of the four does not belong because each could be the answer for the following reasons: Kenya: It is the only stable democracy out of the four. Libya: It was the only area colonized by the Italians out of the four. Egypt: It has the largest population of… the four, straddles two continents, and played host to an Ancient Civilizations. Zaire: It was the only Belgian Colony in all of Africa and has incredible natural resources such as rare woods. (MORE)
If you mean what side of America it is on, it's in the eastern part of the country. It's surrounded by Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
The desert found between Egypt and Libya is called the LibyanDesert which is part of the lareger Sahara Desert.
The area of Egypt in square miles is 387,048 square miles, or 2,043,613,440 square feet. The area of Libya is 679,359 square miles, or 3,587,015,520 square feet. If you subtract the are of Egypt from the area of Libya, you can find that Libya is actually 1,543,402,080 square feet larger than than E…gypt. (MORE)
Libya is on the north coast of Africa. i.e. technically it's Northern Africa. It is not a part of the traditional definition of the Middle East, but a part of the Greater Middle East. Note, Lybia's northern border is the Mediterranean Ocean so one could say it is a ""Mediterranean" country.
There are no deserts to the east of Egypt. Egypt is bounded by the Red Sea from the East. The Egyptian desert is part of the sahara desert. The portion of the desert east of the Nile is called the Eastern Desert and the portion to the west of the Nile is called the Western Desert. There is also the …Sinia desert in the north eastern part of Egypt to the east of the Suez Canal. (MORE)
Libya because libya produces more oil than qatar but qatar are clever they know how to use there money well and libya dosent and qatar is one of the rishest country in the world and libya earn more than them so that means libya is richer that eygpt
All stars that we see appear to move from east to west ... an illusion caused by the Earth's rotation. None move from west to east.
Wind direction and the water's current direction are important, not the compass direction. Assume your sailboat is travelling west to east, around Cape Horn (the bottom of South America.) This means that you will be going from the Pacific Ocean, around the tip of South America, and on into to the A…tlantic. The winds there at Cape Horn USUALLY come from the west, blowing to the east. So, the winds are blowing the same way that you want to go. But, if you were in the Atlantic and wanted to go to the Pacific (travelling from the east going to the west), then the winds will be against you making your travelling more difficult. You could call it longer. Sailboats are very responsive to wind. They are a little responsive to water flowing (currents), too. Winds are very important to sailboat travel with water currents being a little important. So, depending on the wind and current direction at your location, your travelling will be longer one way and shorter the other way. But that could be different at another location. (MORE)
because the majority of the solar system rotates the same way. conservation of angular momentum.
There is no peninsula in southeast Egypt., There is one peninsula in northeast Egypt called the Sinai Peninsula.
The Libyan Desert, a division of the larger Sahara, is found in Egypt and Libya west of the Nile.
Egypt and Libya had at one point been on fairly good terms, as both enjoyed Soviet support in the ongoing Arab-Israeli Conflict. After the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, (in which Libya and Egypt were allies), Egypt turned toward the West, ejected their Soviet advisors, and became friendlier with the United… States. Also, Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat began to make initial peace moves toward Israel. Libya's leader, Colonel Muammar Khaddafi, still strongly allied with the Soviet Union, expressed his displeasure at Egypt's moves toward peace with Israel by expelling 225,000 Egyptian workers from Libya and by organizing a "March on Cairo," in June, 1977, to protest against Egypt. The march was halted by Egyptian border guards. Analysts also believed that this Libya-Egypt conflict was part of a larger Soviet-sponsored plan to destabilize not only Egypt, but also other pro-Western nations in north-east Africa; Sudan and Somalia. Libya had sponsored a coup attempt against Sudan's leader in 1976, and Marxist-led (and Soviet allied) Ethiopia was engaged in a border conflict with Somalia's President Muhammad Siad Barre, who had, like Sadat, recently ejected the Soviets from his country.

Directly east of Libya is Egypt, another African nation. However, east of Egypt is the continent of Asia.
The Sahara covers almost all of the northern third of Africa, including the countries you mention. It covers parts of about 11 countries total.
The Sahara is found in all the listed countries as well as a number of others.
West of Libya is Algeria South of Libya is Niger and Chad Southeast of Libya is Sudan East of Libya is Egypt
