Therefore, the total number of latitudes are 181; and the total number of longitudes are 360.

## How many latitudes are there in total?

Latitude is the measurement of distance north or south of the Equator. It is measured with 180 imaginary lines that form circles around the Earth east-west, parallel to the Equator. These lines are known as parallels.

## How many longitudinal lines are there in India?

Explanation. India is located in the northern hemisphere of the world. From the extends south to north, the mainland of India extends between 8°4’N and 37°6’N latitudes. From the other extends west to east, India extends between 68°7’E and 97°25’E longitudes.

## How the total number of latitudes is 181?

Counting the equator there are 90+90+1=181 latitudes. there are 90 parallel on northern hemisphere and 90on southern hemisphere and one equator.. total:90+90+1=181. The equator is between of the earth.

## Why India is called Peninsula?

## Are there 180 or 181 latitudes?

Longitude lines runs from North to south pole means a complete circles and hence covers 360 degrees and that is why there are 360 longitudes. Each section from equator to pole is 90 degrees and two poles have 2 quarters of circle/globe hence 90X2 180 lattitudes. … adding the Equator it becomes 181 latitudes.

## Why is North Pole 90 degree?

It is the precise point of the intersection of the Earth’s axis and the Earth’s surface. From the North Pole, all directions are south. Its latitude is 90 degrees north, and all lines of longitude meet there (as well as at the South Pole, on the opposite end of the Earth).

## How is Earth time calculated?

The earth has 360 imaginary lines called longitudes or meridians running vertically between the poles. Each of these longitudes is called a degree. The 0 degree longitude passing through Greenwich, near London, is considered as standard and the time of all other time zones are calculated accordingly.

## What are the 2 main lines of longitude?

1. Prime Meridian = Longitude 0o (Greenwich Meridian). 2. International Date Line (Longitude 180o).

## How many longitudes are on the earth?

To measure longitude east or west of the Prime Meridian, there are 180 vertical longitude lines east of the Prime Meridian and 180 vertical longitude lines west of the Prime Meridian, so longitude locations are given as __ degrees east or __ degrees west.

## How many lines cross India?

The short answer is that India is crossed by 30 whole-number longitude lines and either 31, 29, 27, or 25 whole-number latitude lines. The largest definition of India includes latitudes between 6.74 (Greater Nicobar Island) and 37.09 in northern Kashmir.
