MCQ
True or False

Complete the sentence by selecting the correct option:

The differene between the local time of any two consecutive longitudes is

• 15 minutes

• 04 minutes

• 30 minutes

• 60 minutes

#### Solution

Longitude is the angular distance of a place east or west of the meridian at Greenwich, England. It is represented in degrees.

One rotation = 360o

The time required for the earth to complete one rotation or 360o = 24 hours

The difference in degrees between any two consecutive longitudes is 1o

thus, the difference between the local time of any two consecutive longitudes = 24/360 hours = 0.066 hour

1 hour = 60 mins

⇒ 0.066 hour = 4 mins
