humans need sunlight for the production of vitamin d without it we would have serious bone problems and diseases

# What are the factors affecting the amount of solar energy that earth receives?

If you're talking about the whole Earth, there are not many that affect the amount of energy. One factor is in the distance of the Earth from the Sun. The Earth gets slightly

# Is the amount of solar energy earth receives always the same?

no. well, over small time frames it is effectiveley yes, like over 100 years or so. but any more hundreds of years, our sensitive instruments could pick up differences. the su

# What affects the amount of solar energy the planet receives?

There are a few different things that affect the amount of solarenergy that the planet receives. The atmosphere is one of thesefactors.

# Why do latitudes differ in the amount of solar energy they receive?

Because of the earth's round shape the equator, is closest to the sun and the closer you get to the earths poles, you get further and further from the sun. Plus, since every

# How do rotation and tilt each affect the amount of solar energy receives?

# What affects the amount of direct solar energy at different areas of the earth?

the rotation and tilt

# How does the angle of the sun affect the amount of heat received on different parts of the earth?

the earth is tilted so the north pole that we normally think of, isn't the actual north pole. what it is is the magnetic north pole (where compasses point). but that's not re

# Why do different parts of Earths surface receive different amounts of energy from the sun?

The higher the latitude the greater the thickness of atmospherethrough which the sun's radiation has to pass, hence the leseenergy reaching the ground.

# How do rotation and tilt each affect the ammount of solar energy that differenty parts of earth receive?

They affect because earths rotation can go larger and sorter fromsun and ,tilt affects because it can move earth at every side andthat has a shadow in other part of earth.
