For a time difference of two hours, the longitudinal distance will be equal to ________.
Every one degree shift of longitude corresponds to 4 minute time difference.
So a time difference of 1 hour (60 minute) will have:
1 degree = 4 minutes
So, 60/4 = 15 and 15 × 1° = 15°
Now for 2 hours (120 min)
1 degree = 4 minutes
120/4 = 30 and 30 × 1° = 30°
So a time lag of 2 hours corresponds to 30 degrees of longitudinal change.
This follows from a simple fact that 360∘ ⇒ 24 hour.
Which is same as 360° ⇒ 1440 min. So 1° ⇒ 1440360 = 4 minutes.
