How many continents make up the Eastern Hemisphere?

There are five continents in the Eastern Hemisphere:

Africa

Antarctica

Asia

Australia

Europe

The western third of North Africa is technically in the western hemisphere (west longitude). Only about 25% of the land area of Antarctica is in the western hemisphere.

What is the longest distance between two points on earth?

no will never no. <who ever said that needs a brain!

This one is pretty simple.

The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,901.55 miles (40,075.16 kilometers). Through the Poles it is shorter.

Simply half the circumference eg - 12450.775 Miles.

What are the hemispheres of the Earth?

A hemisphere is one half of a sphere, so any sphere can be divided equally in two by a plane through its center.

The geographical hemispheres of Earth are the cartological divisions of its surface. The most common are the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (separated by the equator) and the Eastern and Western Hemispheres (defined by the arbitrary E and W longitude designations). Locations up to 180° west of the Greenwich or Prime Meridian are the Western Hemisphere. Locations up to 180° east are in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Continents entirely in the Western Hemisphere are North and South America. Continents entirely in the Eastern Hemisphere are Asia and Australia. Most of Africa, most of Europe, and half of Antarctica are also in the Eastern Hemisphere.

The only continents that lie entirely in the Southern Hemisphere are Australia and Antarctica.

Africa
Hemispheres

Which hemisphere is Africa located?

If one defines the northern and southern hemispheres to be separated by the Equator and the eastern and western hemispheres to be separated by the Greenwich Meridian (and the International Date Line), then parts of the continent of Africa is in all 4 of the hemispheres.

This is because the Equator passes east west through the middle of Africa which means that it straddles the north south divide and the Greenwich Meridian passes through the west side of northern Africa which means it straddles the east west divide.

Seasons

What causes the seasons in the northern hemisphere to be the opposite of those in the southern hemisphere?

The earth revolves around the sun but it's tilted. The angle of the tilt doesn't change just the position of the planet. The summer is when that part of the globe is tilted towards the sun. If the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun the southern hemisphere would be tilted away. The part tilted towards the sun gets more sunlight and is warmer. The part tilted away wouldn't get as much light and would be colder.

How do eastern and western hemisphere seasons related?

Assuming you are on the same side of the equator, they are essentially the same. North of the equator, summer in Kansas is the same as summer in Belgium. But summer in Kansas and Belgium is Winter in Australia (South of the equator).

Which Hemisphere has more land the Eastern or Western?

The Eastern Hemisphere has more land than the Western Hemisphere. However, there is still more water than land in either hemisphere.

The Eastern Hemisphere includes Australia, virtually all of Asia, and the great majority of Europe, Africa, and Antarctica. The land in the Western Hemisphere consists primarily of the Americas. They are the same size, but the eastern hemisphere has more land.

Definitions

What is the definition of hemisphere?

A hemisphere is one-half of a sphere, where the sphere may be divided by any plane that includes the center of the sphere.

In practice, there are various uses for the term.

Geography

Half of the terrestrial globe, or a projection of the Earth's surface in a map or picture. The most common hemispheric divisions are Northern and Southern or Eastern and Western. The northern and southern hemispheres are separated by the equator, and the eastern and western are defined by their longitudinal direction from the Prime Meridian -- each includes 180° of the Earth's surface.

In common use, the continents of North and South America make up the Western Hemisphere, including almost all of the Atlantic Ocean and about 60% of the Pacific.

Automotive

The term hemisphere (hemi) is used to indicate that the top of each cylinder is a hollow hemisphere rather than flattened.

Does the northern or southern hemisphere have more land?

The Northern Hemisphere has much more land than the southern. About 7/8 of the world's land area is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Even the Land Hemisphere (half of Earth's surface containing the maximum land area) is still slightly more than half water. Oceans cover 70% of Earth's surface.
