KCSE Geography Paper 1 2005 Section A Question 1.
(a) Name two theories of the origin of the earth
(b) Name four layers of the earth’s atmosphere
KCSE Geography Paper 1 2006 Section A Question 3.
The diagram below shows the composition of the solar system
(a) Name the planets marked F and G
(b) State three effects of the rotation of the earth on its axis
KCSE Geography Paper 1 2007 Section A Question 4.
The diagram below represents the structure of the earth. Use it to answer question
Use the diagram below to answer the questions that follows
Outline the process though which the moist winds shown go through to eventually become dry winds
- The moist air which is lighter ( forced) ascends) the highland in/ the moist air is subjected to prographic force
- The force ascents leads to the expansion of the air
- The moisture in the air condenses forming clouds
- Descending air is dry wind
Give three components of the solar system.
- The sun
- The planets
- Natural satellites
(a) What is land breeze?
- Is a mass of cool air blowing from the land to the sea during the night.
(b) Give two ways in which sea breezes influence the adjacent land.
- It lowers temperature of adjacent areas.
- It may increase rainfall.
- It may increase relative humidity.
- It moderates diurnal range of temperature.
- It may lead to convectional rainfall.
The diagram below shows the angles of the sun’s rays at different latitudes when the sun is at the equator.Use it to answer questions (a) and (b).
The diagram below shows the angles of the sun’s rays at different latitudes when the sun is at the equator. Use it to answer questions (a) and (b).
(a) Name the parts of the earth’s surface marked J and K.
- J - North pole
- K- South pole
(b) Give two reasons why the intensity of the insolation is higher at M than at N.
- There is a higher concentration of heating at M than at N because the surface area at M is small than at N.
- The angle of incidence of the sun's rays at M is higher than at N have the variation in intensity.
- At N the sun's rays travel over a longer distance than at M thus losing the heat resulting to low intensity.
(a) Name the two layers of discontinuity that are part of the interior structure of earth.
(b) State three characteristics of the outer core in the interior structure of the earth.
- outer core is composed of molten rock material.
- is made up of iron and nickel.
- is estimated to be about 2100km to 2890km thick.
- has temperatures ranging from 3700°C to 5000°C.
- has an average density of 10.0gm/cc to 12.3gm/cc.
