Why is the equator so hot all the time?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Earth is tilted 23.5 degrees, relative to the sun.  This means that the North and South poles never really get extended direct sunlight, and that they will have extremely long days/nights depending on the Earth’s revolution.  It also means that the Equator, the imaginary line drawn horizontally around the entire Earth, is pretty much constant in daylight hours and receives direct sunlight virtually all year long.  This direct sunlight is the reason Equator areas are so hot all the time – it’s summer every day of the year!

    the reason why the equator is always hot is becuase the suns rays get absorbed becuase of the angle of incident and also because the equator is margenally closer to the sun due to the shape of the earth.
