What part of earth receives the most direct solar energy?

The equator.


Why can it be summer on one part of the planet and winter on another?

the earth is tilted and some parts of it get direct sunlight and other parts dont.


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 factors:Geographic locationTime of daySeasonLocal landscapeLocal weather.Diffuse and Direct Solar RadiationAs sunlight passes through the atmosphere, some of it is absorbed, scattered, and reflected by the following: Air moleculesWater vaporCloudsDustPollutantsForest firesVolcanoes.This is called diffuse solar radiation. The solar radiation that reaches the Earth's surface without being diffused is called direct beam solar radiation. The sum of the diffuse and direct solar radiation is called global solar radiation. Atmospheric conditions can reduce direct beam radiation by 10% on clear, dry days and by 100% during thick, cloudy days.


What part of the earth is the warmest and why?

the equater is the warmest part of the earth because it's the fatest part of the earth. Which means the equater gets the most sunlight to allow it to heat up.


What time is dusk in the summer?

The time of dusk in the summer, or in the winter, depends on your location on the earth. Within time zones, it also depends on whether you are nearer to the eastern or western edge of your time zone. Dusk begins when the orb of the sun drops below the horizon. According to Wikipedia: "Twilight is technically defined as the period before sunrise and after sunset during which there is natural light provided by the upper atmosphere, which receives direct sunlight and scatters part of it towards the earth's surface."

Why do earth have season?

That's because Earth's axis is tilted (as compared to a line that is perpendicular to Earth's plane of rotation). As a result, during part of the year, the northern hemisphere receives more sunlight; during another part of the year, the southern hemisphere receives more sunlight.

Did sunlight hit all part of all earth evenly?

Of course sunlight doesn't hit the earth's surface evenly! Countries on the equator or near it receive the most direct sunlight. And of course countries in the artic circle have hardly any! [^-^]


Why do temperatures decrease in the northern part of planet?

Essentially it is due to the Earth's position relative to the sun. As the Earth rotates and orbits the sun the northern hemisphere is not receiving as much direct sunlight, hence cooler temperatures. The equator for example, receives much more direct line from the sun, and therefore countries and locales around the equator are much warmer in temperature.


What continents never have direct sunlight shining on them?
