Why are the equatorial regions hot and the high latitude regions cool?

Asked by Topperlearning User 25th October 2016, 4:46 PM
Answered by Expert

The equator receives direct rays of the Sun. As the Sun moves away from the equator, the rays of the Sun become slanted (indirect rays). Because the direct rays of the Sun give more heat than the slanting rays, the equatorial regions are hot and the high latitude regions are cool.
