The prime meridian and the 180° meridian (generally, the international date line) divide the eastern and western hemispheres. The equator divides northern and southern hemispheres. The Tropics (Cancer and Capricorn) are lines of longitude and do not divide east-west.

It's an imaginary division that some folks a long time ago agreed would be a line passing through Greenwich, England. It circles the globe, dividing it in two . This line is called the "International Date Line".

The prime meridian Goes from the north pole to the south pole in the Atlantic Ocean. What is the meridian, if named, 180 degrees around on the other side of the globe?
