# Can you explain in more detail WHY ....if you live in Atlanta and your grandparents live in Seattle and they go to bed at 10 pm.. 7pm Atlanta time would be the latest they would call....

I think that's wrong.

Since the sun rises in the east, the east coast, including Atlanta, sees the sun first -- say 7 a.m. But in Seattle, it's still dark -- 4 a.m. As the earth revolves, it gets light farther and farther west. So, when it's dark -- say 10 p.m. in Atlanta -- it's still light -- 7 p.m. in Seattle. So when your grandparents go to bed at 10 p.m. in Seattle, it's 1 a.m. the next day in Atlanta.

My son and his family live in the Pacific Zone, and I live in the Eastern Zone. When they go to bed at 10 p.m., I've already been in bed for a couple of hours.

Hey Ms. Sue!

Remember one time I asked what's a good way to remember your timed tables and I think you gave me like 3 or 4 websites. Could you give me those websites again please if you still can look them up please?

These websites have games and many ways to practice the times tables.

Thank You okay! : )

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is a link to one of the World Clocks: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

When you want to call someone in a different time zone you have to keep in track of how many hours different are they. For example, When I call friends in Netherlands I hav to rememer that they are 9 hours later. So it can be noon here but 9 p.m. that day there!

## Sure! When you live in Atlanta and your grandparents live in Seattle, there is a time difference between the two locations. Atlanta is in the Eastern Time Zone, while Seattle is in the Pacific Time Zone. There is a 3-hour time difference between these two zones, with Seattle being 3 hours behind Atlanta.

Let's say your grandparents go to bed at 10 pm Seattle time. If we account for the time difference, it means they go to bed at 1 am Atlanta time. This is because when it's 10 pm in Seattle, it's already 1 am the next day in Atlanta due to the time difference.

To figure out the time difference, you need to consider how far east or west the two locations are in terms of their distance from the Prime Meridian (0 degrees longitude). As the Earth rotates from west to east, the areas towards the east experience sunrise and daylight earlier, while the areas towards the west experience it later.

In this case, Atlanta is located farther east compared to Seattle. So, when it's 10 pm in Seattle, it's still light outside in Seattle because it is farther west and the sun hasn't set yet. However, it is later in the evening in Atlanta, which is farther east, and the sun has already set, making it dark.

To summarize, the time difference between Atlanta and Seattle, combined with the rotation of the Earth and the placement of the two cities in relation to the Prime Meridian, determines that when your grandparents go to bed at 10 pm Seattle time, it is already 1 am the next day in Atlanta.
