2. Check: Click Fire. Select the TABLE tab to see how many rays hit each plate.
A. Which plate got the most sunlight? Plate D. The least? A and G.
B. Why is it colder at the poles than at the equator? The reason why is because the Sun’s rays hit those areas with the least amount of rays. They are also faced away from the sun the most compared the other areas meaning they will get the least of the Sun’s rays.
3. Set up Gizmo: Click Reset, and turn on Show axis. Earth’s axis is an imaginary line that connects the North Pole to the South Pole. Earth spins around its axis, which is tilted relative to Earth’s orbit. Click Earth axis angle to set the axis angle to a realistic 23°.
