Question #142755

If the local time of A is 7:30 am and longitude is 60 degrees west, what will the local time of town B be if it is 40 degrees east?

Expert's answer

The simple rule is that 15° correspond 1 hour difference. To the west of a prime meridian, time zones decrease, to the east time increases.

So, we have 60°+40°=100° degrees difference. In hours it will be

Now, to find time at 40° E, all we need to do is to add 6 h 40 min to 7:30, which results in

Thus, for 40°E, the time will be 2:10 pm.
