How many lines of longitude are on the globe?

There is an infinite number of possible longitudinal lines. But the total number of degrees is 360; 180 east and 180 west. There are 60 minutes in a degree and 60 seconds in the minute. How you sub-divide from there gives infinite possibilities.. There are usually 36 lines of longitude on the glo (MORE)

What is the number of 1 degree latitude and longitude lines that can be drawn on a globe?

90 degrees north latitude and 90 degrees south latitude are the maximum values; they represent the exact locations of the pole. Zero degrees is the equator. 180 degrees longitude is the exact limit of longitude; it represents the originally defined location of the International Date Line, exactly op (MORE)

What is the 0 degrees line of longitude called?

The name given to the imaginary line of zero longitude on the earth's surface is the " Prime Meridian " or " Greenwich Meridian ".

Why is the 0 degree longitude line special?

The Prime Meridian is the beginning (and ending) of a complete 360 ° circle around the Earth. It runs through The royal Observatory in Greenwich England simply because that is the spot where the meeting took place to determine where the circle would start.

What line of longitude is labeled 0 degrees and separates the Northern Hemisphere from the Southern Hemisphere?

The 0 degree line of latitude separates te northern and the southern hemispheres. It is called the Equator. Lines of latitude mark distances from equator to each respective pole. From 0 degrees latitude (the Equator), there are 90 degrees to each pole. Each degree of latitude is 60 nautical miles. (MORE)

Where is 0 degrees latitude and longitude?

The equator goes all around the Earth, it's almost 25,000 miles long, and every point on it has zero latitude. The Prime Meridian goes halfway around the Earth. It's over 12,000 miles long, and every point on it has zero longitude. There's one point on Earth that has both zero lati (MORE)

How many straight lines can pass through 0 and 180 degrees longitude?

This is a difficult question to answer because it is probably in the realms of spherical geometry, not the Euclidean geometry. In the Euclidean sense there is no straight line on the suface of a sphere. The 0 and 180 degrees longitude can be seen to represent the intersection of the sphere (the ear (MORE)
