10 most difficult time riddlesTime quiz
What is the highest time zone?
Time zones range from UTC-12 to UTC+14. UTC+14 stretches as far as 30° east of the 180° longitude line and creates a large fold in the International Date Line. In Kiribati (UTC+14), the local time is the same as in Hawaiʻi (UTC−10:00), but the date is one day ahead. It is also 26 hours ahead of Baker Island (UTC−12:00).
What was the exposure time of this photo?
about 10 seconds
about 10 minutes
about 1 hour
about 8 hours
The length of stars trails is pretty much the same as the distance travelled by an hour hand of clock during 30 minutes. But the Earth rotates twice as slow compared to the hour hand of a clock (one rotation per day, while clock's hour hand makes two).
What are the most luminous objects in the universe?
A quasar is an extremely energetic source of radiation powered by accretion disc around galaxy's central supermassive black hole. Quasars were much more common in the early universe, as all known quasars are extremely distant.
What does not include, Unix time?
of leap years
of leap hours
of leap minutes
of leap seconds
Unix time is a date-time format used to express the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 00:00:00 (UTC). Unix time does not handle the extra seconds that occur on the extra day of leap years. Currently, the difference is about 2 to 3 milliseconds a day and is adjusted on average once a year.
World's fastest high-speed cameras were built to take photos of specific objects. What kind of objects?
nuclear bomb explosions
The rapatronic cameras are capable of recording a still image with an exposure time as brief as 10 nanoseconds (that would give 100 million frames per second if the camera was capable to do multiple pictures). The camera uses two polarizing filters mounted with their polarization angles at 90° to each other and a Faraday cell which briefly changes the polarization plane of light passing through it, acting as a shutter.
Which large country uses UTC +5:30 time zone?
India is one of the few countries that use single time zone with a 30-minute increment from UTC. The country's east–west distance covers 28 degrees of longitude, resulting in two hours difference in astronomical time. Since authorities decided to have one time zone for the whole country, they had to adjust it precisely.
Which is currently a year in North Korea?
There is no calendar in North Korea
The year isn't 2018. The North Korean or Juche calendar was adopted in 1997 and begins with the year of Kim Il-sung's birth (1912 – or Juche 1 to North Koreans). Which means 2018 in Pyongyang is actually Juche 107.
