Question details

When the clock reads 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, the sun is directly over 75°W. Athens, GA, is located at 83.4°W. Knowing that it takes 60 minutes for the sun to cover 15° of longitude, how long does it take, in minutes, for the sun to be directly overhead Athens? In other words, what is the difference in minutes between the local sun time for Athens and the Eastern Standard Time? (Show your calculation to avoid missing points!)
