Solar Time

Martin Van Buren High School


Mr cesaire

  • Aim: How do we determine the time at different cities?

  • Do Now: In your notes, explain why our local time is different in other parts of the world.

  • HW: Read and be familiar with pages 32-35 in your UPCO book.


Mr cesaire

  • Question-

  • Who can tell me the current time in Chicago, Illinois?

  • Miami, Florida?

  • Houston, Texas?

  • Los Angeles, California?

  • Honolulu, Hawaii?

  • London, England?


Mr cesaire

  • How do we determine the different times around the world?

  • If you have the following:

  • Green review book-read pages 13-14- solar time and clock time

  • Answer the following in your notes:

  • What is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)?

  • How many degrees does the Earth rotate per hour?

  • How is this determined?


Mr cesaire

  • Solar time- the time of day at a specific longitude.

  • You can find your local time based on the current solar time at Greenwich, England (GMT).

  • Any location west of the Prime Meridian (GMT or UTC) is behind.

  • Any location east of the Prime Meridian (GMT or UTC) is ahead.


Mr cesaire

  • It takes the Earth to rotate once every 24 hours; or 360 degrees.

  • 360 degrees/24 hours=?

  • Now you try to find the times at different cities.

  • Lines of longitude are 15 degrees apart.
