### Answer the following questions briefly

(a) What is the angle of inclination of the earthâ€™s axis with its orbital plane?

The angle of inclination of the Earth’s axis with its orbital plane is approximately 23.5 degrees.

(b) Define rotation and revolution?

Rotation refers to the Earth spinning on its axis, causing day and night. Revolution refers to the Earth orbiting around the Sun, completing one orbit in about 365.25 days, resulting in the change of seasons.

(c) What is a leap year?

A leap year is a year that contains an extra day, February 29th, to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolution around the Sun. Leap years occur every four years, except for years divisible by 100 but not by 400.

(d) Differentiate between the Summer and Winter Solstice?

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and marks the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year and marks the beginning of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

(e) What is an equinox?

An equinox is a phenomenon that occurs twice a year, in spring and autumn, when the duration of day and night is approximately equal all over the world.

(f) Why does the Southern Hemisphere experience Winter and Summer Solstice in different times than that of the Northern Hemisphere?

The Southern Hemisphere experiences winter and summer solstices at different times than the Northern Hemisphere because when one hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, the other is tilted away, resulting in opposite seasons due to the Earth’s axial tilt.

(g) Why do the poles experience about six months day and six months of night?

The poles experience about six months of continuous day and six months of continuous night due to the Earth’s tilted axis. During the respective hemisphere’s summer, the pole is tilted towards the Sun, causing continuous daylight, and during winter, it tilts away, resulting in continuous darkness.
