6th Class Chapter No 14 - Globe: Latitudes and Longitudes in Social for CBSE NCERT

Latitudes Equator Equator is an imaginary line running on the globe that divides it into two equal parts. Northern half of the earth is known as the Northern Hemisphere and Southern half is known as the Southern Hemisphere. Parallels of latitudes Parallels of latitudes are parallel circles from the equator up to the poles. They are measured in degrees. The equator represents the zero degrees latitude. Its distance from the equator to either of the poles is one-fourth of a circle round the earth, it will measure ¼th of 360 degrees, i.e. 90°. Thus, 90 degrees north latitude marks the North Pole and 90 degrees south latitude marks the South Pole. Longitudes Prime Meridian The meridian which passed through Greenwich, where the British Royal Observatory is located. This meridian is considered as the Prime Meridian. Its value is 0° longitude and from it we count 180° eastward as well as 180° westward. The Prime Meridian and 180° meridian divide the earth into two equal halves, the Eastern Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere
