A closed system

 

Question 88

In an open earth system:

 

There is a free flow of energy and matter

All are true

There is a free flow of matter but not energy

Neither energy nor mass transfer takes place across system boundary

 

 

 

Question 89

What type of feedback maintains stability in a system or keeps a system functioning properly?

 

Negative

It can't be determined.

Neutral

Positive

 

Question 90

Positive

Neutral

It can't be determined

Negative

Question 91

Which of the following statement(s) about Earth's dimensions is correct?

 

Its equatorial circumstance is about 40,000 km or 24,900 miles

All are correct statements about the earth's dimension.

The equatorial diameter is greater than the polar diameter.

Meridians are spaced far apart near equator but spaced closer near the polar regions.

Its shape is oblate spheroid; not a perfect circle.

 

Question 92

An angular distance measured east or west of a prime meridian from the center of Earth is termed

 

azimuth

longitude or meridian.

zenith.

latitude or parallel.

 

Question 93

San Francisco (CA) is located west of Dallas (TX). The time at San Francisco is __________ than that at Dallas because Earth rotates from __________ when viewed from above the North Pole.

 

earlier; east to west (i.e., clockwise)

earlier; west to east (i.e., counterclockwise)

later; west to east (i.e., counterclockwise)

later; east to west (i.e., clockwise)

 

Question 94

Standard time zones:

 

are only used in the developed countries.

don't use daylight saving time.

Divide the earth into 39 time zones.

have yet to be generally established.

are 15° wide because Earth rotates through that distance in one hour.

 

Question 95

Why is the International Date Line zigzagging around the middle of Pacific Ocean?

 

It was drawn with the consideration not to split small island territories into different days that could potentially cause confusion and prevent them from trading with nearby territories.

Because it is an imaginary, not real, line.

Because cartographers made an error in drawing the line.

Because the earth is a 3-D sphere

Because there are ridges in the middle of the ocean preventing it from being drawn straight.

 

 

Question 96

A rhumb line is:

 

a line that closely follows the small circle route.

a line crossing all meridians at the same angle but changing directions as measured to true north.

None of the above

a line that closely follows the great circle route, crossing all meridians at the same angle and not changing directions as measured to true north.

an atlas

a globe

a digital map

GPS

A paper map

 

Question 102

The spatial inquiry step used by physical geographers to study a phenomenon on earth's surface starts with:

 

Writing a theory

Making a map

Making empirical observation of the physical environment

Making an experiment

Formulating a hypothesis

 

Question 103

A flow of energy in the earth system can be explained using ___________ as an example.

 

Photosynthesis - a process which converts solar energy from the sun to chemical energy found in the food we eat

Rain falls - rain causing running water, the kinetic energy from running water erodes hillsides causing mudflow

Solar radiation - energy heats a lake water, the lake water evaporates as latent heat

Electrical energy - electrical charge is produced with a thunderstorm resulting from releases of latent heat of condensation

All are good examples.

 

 

Question 104

Distance between meridians on the equator is __compared to distance between meridians at 60° N or S.

 

Far

Closer

It shows the shortest distance between two points on earth

It bisects the globe into two equal parts

It is represented by the equator as the only parallel that is a great circle

All listed are possible answers

 

Question 109
