Δλ = from 056 to 073 east longitude.

You can find detailed information on this subject under Longitude and Latitude.

Legal time

For Uzbekistan, the following value applies to Central European Time (CET), i.e. the time (without summer time) in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. A minus sign means that it is earlier there and a plus sign that it is later than after CET:

Δt (CET) = + 4 h

Further and detailed explanations of the time can be found under Time zones, time.

The highest point of the sun in Tashkent

Tashkent, the capital of the country, lies at a northern latitude of around φ = 41 (exactly: 41 20 ').

If the sun, or its image point, is at the northern tropic, i.e. at Δ = 23.5 , summer begins in Tashkent, this is June 21. Thus, for the highest position of the sun at noon, according to Eq. 1 (see position of the sun):

41 = (90 - h) + 23.5

so:

H = 72.5

At 72.5 , the sun in Tashkent has the highest level of the entire year above the horizon (more precisely: above the horizon).
