If you were in Uruguay and looked at your compass which way would the needle be pointing?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends which direction you're facing, it has nothing to do with where on the planet you are.

WRONG ANSWER! Regardless of WHERE you are, or WHICH way you are looking, the compass needle will point to the NORTH. Not to the NORTH POLE mind you, but to the MAGNETIC NORTH, which is a little bit off from the TRUE NORTH and also MOVES a little bit every year. This is called VARIATION and depending on where you are, the TRUE NORTH may be to the right or to the left of where the compass needle points. Your reading will also be a little bit off to one side or the other, depending on which direction the needle is pointing (hey, nobody's perfect), but this is predictable and can be measured when the compass is calibrated (a process called swinging the compass). This is called COMPASS DEVIATION (don't think deviate now...) Another change may happen if you are going from West to East or viceversa AND you are accelerating or deccelerating, in which case the needle will lag. Last but not least, if you have any kind of magnetic interference near the compass, like a screwdriver with a magnetic tip, oh well then... the needle may be pointing God knows where.
North
north because that's what way compasses point.

When is it summer in Uruguay?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

January is the best time. If you want to visit its beautiful beaches I suggest you going in summer, of course, that's from the end of December to the end of March. January is when most people visits its beaches in the south east of the country.

If you want to visit historical places like Colonia and Montevideo you can go anytime. To visit Montevideo is better not to go during summer as there is very few people and most guides are in the east.
