PROBLEM SET 3 Key 1. What is the altitude of the Sun above the northern horizon at noon In Perth, Australia on the summer solstice? Assume the attitude of Perth is 31.95 S. Latitude = (Zenith – Altitude) – 23.5 o Altitude = Zenith – (Latitude +23.5 o ) = 90 o – (31.95 o + 23.5 o ) Altitude = 90 o – 55.45 o = 34.55 o 2. What is the latitude of an observer who measures an altitude of the Sun above the northern horizon of 50.0 at noon on the winter solstice? Latitude = (Zenith – Altitude) + 23.5 o = (90 o – 50 o ) + 23.5 o = 40 o + 23.5 o = 63.5 o S 3. On March 1 at a location in the Northern Hemisphere, the sunrise was at 6:35 a.m. and sunset was at 5:50 p.m. On March 31, the sunrise was at 5:45 a.m. and sunset was at 6:25 p.m. What was the average change in the daylight per day, in minutes, during this period? Assume all times are standard time. Take the difference between the length of daylight on the last date and the first date and divide by the number of days. The length of daylight is the difference

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
