Changes in the Hours of Daylight

Hello Everyone! I've sure been posting a lot this week...Ms. Jovanovich has kindly given us a lot of extra credit opportunities! :)

For this extra credit, I needed to keep track of the hours of daylight each day over the past two weeks. It was very interesting to see how it changed. Below is a table of my findings:

 Date Sunrise Sunset Hours of Daylight 12/1/11 6:54 AM 4:05 PM 9h 11m 5s 12/2/11 6:55 AM 4:05 PM 9h 09m 40s 12/3/11 6:56 AM 4:05 PM 9h 08m 18s 12/4/11 6:57 AM 4:04 PM 9h 07m 00s 12/5/11 6:58 AM 4:04 PM 9h 05m 46s 12/6/11 6:59 AM 4:04 PM 9h 04m 36s 12/7/11 7:00 AM 4:04 PM 9h 03m 30s 12/8/11 7:01 AM 4:04 PM 9h 02m 28s 12/9/11 7:02 AM 4:04 PM 9h 01m 30s 12/10/11 7:03 AM 4:04 PM 9h 00m 36s 12/11/11 7:04 AM 4:04 PM 8h 59m 47s 12/12/11 7:05 AM 4:04 PM 8h 59m 01s 12/13/11 7:06 AM 4:04 PM 8h 58m 21s 12/14/11 7:07 AM 4:04 PM 8h 57m 44s

After completing that, I needed to make a graph of my data:

The y axis should be labeled the total hours of daylight, and the x axis should be labeled the number of day in December (it begins with December 1).

Hope you've learned a little bit about how daylight totals during the winter change! I've certainly learned a lot from this.

Have a good week! :)
