Lake Effect-longitude And Latitude - Quiz

Please take the quiz based on the lesson and activities that we have completed together in school.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Latitude and longitude are measured in?

    • A.

      Miles

    • B.

      Kilometers

    • C.

      Degrees

    • D.

      Hours

    Correct Answer
    C. Degrees
    Explanation
    Latitude and longitude are measured in degrees because they represent the angular distance on the Earth's surface. Latitude measures the distance north or south of the equator, while longitude measures the distance east or west of the prime meridian. Degrees are a unit of measurement commonly used to express angles, and in the case of latitude and longitude, they are used to precisely locate any point on the Earth's surface.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which lines run north and south along the earth's surface? Choose all that correct answers that apply?

    • A.

      Latitude lines

    • B.

      Longitude lines

    • C.

      Equator

    • D.

      Prime meridian

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Longitude lines
    D. Prime meridian
    Explanation
    Longitude lines and the prime meridian are the correct answers because they run north and south along the Earth's surface. Latitude lines, on the other hand, run east and west. The equator is a line of latitude that runs east-west, not north-south.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The highest number of degrees in latitude is 90?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The latitude lines run horizontally around the Earth and measure the distance north or south of the equator. The equator is at 0 degrees latitude, and the latitude lines extend up to 90 degrees north or south of the equator. Therefore, the highest number of degrees in latitude is indeed 90.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Lines of latitude can be thought of like telephone poles?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Lines of latitude cannot be thought of like telephone poles. Telephone poles are vertical structures used for supporting telephone wires, while lines of latitude are horizontal circles that measure the distance north or south of the equator. They are used to determine locations on the Earth's surface. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The intersection of a particular latitude line with a given longitude line is known as?

    • A.

      Coordinate

    • B.

      Absolute location

    • C.

      Interloping

    • D.

      Relative location

    Correct Answer
    B. Absolute location
    Explanation
    The intersection of a particular latitude line with a given longitude line is known as the absolute location. This refers to the exact point on the Earth's surface that is identified by its latitude and longitude coordinates. It provides a precise and fixed position for any place on the globe, allowing for accurate navigation and mapping.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Degrees of latitude and longitude can be divided into: Choose all that correct answers that apply?

    • A.

      Hours

    • B.

      Minutes

    • C.

      Seconds

    • D.

      Days

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Minutes
    C. Seconds
    Explanation
    Degrees of latitude and longitude can be divided into minutes and seconds. This division allows for more precise and accurate location measurements. Each degree is further divided into 60 minutes, and each minute is divided into 60 seconds. This system of division enables the identification of specific locations on the Earth's surface with greater detail and precision. Days and hours, on the other hand, are not divisions of latitude and longitude, and therefore, they are not correct answers in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When finding longitude, what is your first step?

    • A.

      Determine the direction

    • B.

      Locate the equator

    • C.

      Determine the distance

    • D.

      Go to the starting line

    Correct Answer
    D. Go to the starting line
    Explanation
    The first step in finding longitude is to go to the starting line. This refers to the Prime Meridian, which is the line of longitude that passes through Greenwich, England. By starting at this line, you establish a reference point for measuring east-west distances on the globe. From there, you can determine the longitude of any other location by measuring the angle between that location and the Prime Meridian.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Longitude tells you the distance east or west of the Prime Meridian?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Longitude is a geographic coordinate that indicates the distance east or west of the Prime Meridian, which is the line of longitude that passes through Greenwich, England. Therefore, the statement that longitude tells you the distance east or west of the Prime Meridian is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What are some of the ways in which we use latitude and longitude in everyday life? Choose all that correct answers that apply?

    • A.

      To aim missles in the military

    • B.

      To locate the survivors of a plane crash

    • C.

      To locate the survivors of a plane crash

    • D.

      To determine the height of a skyscraper

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. To aim missles in the military
    B. To locate the survivors of a plane crash
    C. To locate the survivors of a plane crash
    Explanation
    Latitude and longitude are used in everyday life for various purposes. One of the applications is in the military, where they are used to aim missiles accurately. They are also utilized to locate the survivors of a plane crash, as they help in determining the precise location of the crash site. Additionally, latitude and longitude are not used to determine the height of a skyscraper, as that requires different measurements and techniques.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When stating the absolute location of a place, you always give the longitude first?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When stating the absolute location of a place, you do not always give the longitude first. The absolute location of a place is determined by its latitude and longitude coordinates. The latitude measures the distance north or south of the equator, while the longitude measures the distance east or west of the prime meridian. Therefore, the correct order is to give the latitude first, followed by the longitude.
