Are you closer to the equator what youre in northern Aregentina or when your in southern Argentina?
Northern Argentina is closer to the equator than southern Argentina is.
Florida is closer to the equator than southern Argentina or any part of Spain is, although it's closer to southern Spain than it is to Argentina. But northern Argentina is closer to the equator than either Florida or any part of Spain. Southern Spain is also closer to Florida than it is to Argentina, but no part of any of them is as close to the Equator as Ecuador or Gabon is.
Northern Argentina is only 21 degrees south of the equator. All US states except Hawaii are north of the equator by more than 24 degrees. Southern Michigan is nearly twice as far north (42 degrees north). *(Argentina does extend south as far as 55 degrees, which is as far from the equator as southern Alaska.)
Most of Argentina is farther from the equator than all of southern Spain is, but there's a part in the north that's closer. I'm not in either country. There are some parts of Argentina that are farther from the equator than any place in Spain is, but there are certainly places in northern Argentina that are closer to the equator than many parts of southern Spain are.
If you wanted to get as close to the equator as possible, and you had to do it in one of those three places, then you'd want to go to northern Argentina. It is only about 21 degrees south of the equator, while southern California is 32 degrees north at its closest, and southern Spain 36 degrees north.
Assuming that YOU were in either of those locations: Northern Argentina is closer to the equator. The latitude of the equator is zero. Latitudes increase as you move farther from the equator, both north and south. The northernmost point in Argentina is near 21.8° south latitude while the southernmost point in Spain is about 36° N near Gibraltar. There are Spanish islands closer to the equator, the Canary Islands, at 27.6° N, but even so…
Since Kansas, Argentina, and Spain all occupy land areas that comprise great numbers of different points, it's not a simple matter to answer a question like this while maintaining the proper levels of delicacy and absurdity. Northern Argentina is closer to the equator than anywhere in Kansas or Spain. But there's a lot more to say about this situation: There are parts of southern Spain that are closer to the equator than anywhere in Kansas…
