Trace this line across the chart until you reach the vertical line that reads 4:00 pm. Afternoon times are right of center, morning times are left, which corresponds to the position of the sun in the east in the morning and west in the afternoon. The intersection of the August 21 line and the 4:00 pm line lands on a radial circle that reads 30°, which is the altitude angle of the sun above the horizon. Lastly find the radial line that runs from the intersection to the outside circle and read the azimuth as 260°, or 10° shy of due west, this is the horizontal angle of the sun from the reference point of 0 directly to the north.

A temperature taken with a thermometer whose bulb is surrounded by a layer of wet gauze. The difference between wet and dry bulb temperatures, measured with a sling psychrometer, shows the dew point temperature or the temperature that water condenses (typically on a surface).

3). 2. Relationship of the sun to the earth at the solstice’s and equinox. 3. Relationship of the sun to the earth during a revolution in orbit. earth will receive during a day. The amount of radiation is determined in two ways; the first is the number of hours the sun will strike a point on the surface. The lower the sun angle the less time it will be visible from a point on the earth, the higher the angle the more time it will be visible. The second way the amount of solar radiation is determined is at what angle it strikes the surface of the earth.
