  • 0:00 - 0:02
    This question is going to be a little trickier
  • 0:02 - 0:04
    and not because it's something that you don't know how to do,
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    but because I'm not going to give you any pictures for it.
  • 0:07 - 0:12
    If you have a 1 m rod and it casts a 1 m shadow at noon on the summer solstice,
  • 0:12 - 0:17
    I want to know what is your latitude. You can enter your answer here in degrees north.
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    We're going to assume we're in the northern hemisphere here.
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    As a note, the suns rays strike the earth vertically or perpendicularly
  • 0:24 -
