Angle of Heat
Though it is common knowledge that the average temperature increases as you move closer to the equator, many people do not understand why this is so. There are many reasons why the equatorial region experiences a warmer climate. One major reason for this phenomenon is the angle of solar radiation on the Earth. In this experiment, the student will test the effect of the angle of light radiation on temperature. The student will determine if this factor can alone explain the difference in global climates.
How does the angle of light radiation change temperatures?
