What is the purpose of having time zones?
Answer by Student
The purpose of having time zones is to
the time for different regions of the world, based on their position relative to the
or 0° longitude.
Time zones are regions that have a
uniform standard time
for legal, commercial, and social purposes.
They avoid the
confusion and inconvenience
of having different local times for places that are in frequent communication or interaction.
They reflect the
natural variation of daylight hours
across the Earth due to its rotation and orbit.
- They allow people to have a consistent and convenient time for their daily activities, and to synchronize their clocks with the international time standards .
