What Is Aphelion

It is the point where the planet in orbit is furthest from the sun.

What is the Tropic of Capricorn

The Tropic of Capricorn, sometimes also known as the Southern tropic, is a line of latitude about 23 degrees to the south of the equator. It is one of the five major circles of latitude that mark maps of the Earth. Its equivalent in the northern hemisphere is the Tropic of Cancer.

What kind of waves are sound waves

it is longitudinal waves. for a+ users.

When do the sun's most direct rays reach the tropic of Capricorn

The sun is directly overhead on the Tropic of Capricorn at the time
of the December solstice ... roughly December 22 or 23 .

When the earth at perihelion

The point at which Earth is closest to the the Sun is called perihelion. Even though Earth is close to the Sun then, the Northern hemisphere experiences winter then. This is because the Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun at perihelion.

By what process is earth's supply of water recycled

It's Recycled by the "Hydrologic Cycle". . . .A+

Which portion of the electromagnetic spectrum can human eyes detect

light

What region on the earth receives the most direct sunlight during the summer solstice

Tropic of Cancer

Why do the poles experience the coldest temperatures on earth

This is because they are furthest from the direct rays of the sun. Even during the summer when they can receive 24 hours of daylight, the sun is barely above the horizon. Since its rays have to pass through a lot more of the atmosphere, they are "diluted" and can heat the surface very little.

Which term refers to the motion of the earth as it travels around the sun

Revolution

Where would a star at zenith be located

"At zenith" means directly above your head - so high that it can't go any higher.

Which types of water are collected and recycled for use on the international space station

All forms of water are recycled :)

Which term refers to the speed at which a planet travels in its orbit

Orbital velocity refers to the speed at which a planet travels in its orbit.

Which of these will a wave with more energy have

higher amplitude

Which area of study has applications for treatment of osteoporosis

studying the effect of microgravity on the human body

How does the International Space Station obtain its air

It is made through the process of electrolysis

Which method regulates the temperature aboard the space station by reducing the amount of the sun's radiation that is absorbed

insulation

The technology developed by the space program is often incorporated into products people use every day

true

Why is the observatory aboard the International Space Station able to provide a better view into space than is possible from any observatory on earth

its not surrounded by thick atmospheres

Which spacecrafts bring supplies to the space station and are then used as waste storage modules when supplies are unloaded

the progress & the automated transfer vehicle

How can studies on the effects of microgravity impact citizens living on earth

findings can be ussed to help the aging live healthier & live more active lives

What simple seemingly ordinary instrument uses NASA's infrared technology to help provide hospital nursing staffs more time to devote to patient care

An ear thermometer uses NASA's infrared technology.

Only one solution should be considered for any problem that utilizes technological design

false

When the antarctic circle experiences 24 hours of darkness which hemisphere experiences summer

northern hemisphere

The science students gather information about feasibility of solution options to lower the number of students in the hall.

soution design and evaluation

What is a satellite designed to allow humans to live in outer space

A space station is a satellite designed to allow humans to live in outer space.

what step of technological design is represented if scientists at a university develop a drink that replaces lost electrolytes better than water

solution assessment

Which step of technological design is Scientists meet to determine the effectiveness of the robotic machine sent to Mars represented by in this situation
