in which direction will your shadow be formed when you are standing in sun during

(a) early morning ?

(b) afternoon ?

  1. In early morning the sun is at the east and a long shadow will be formed towards the west.
  2. During afternoon the sun is above our head but tilted towards the west. So, a short shadow will form towards the east.

Shadows always form in opposite direction of source of light.

a) Sun revolves from east to west. 

=> Shadow will form in west direction.

b) Sun is overhead or in north direction in afternoon.

=> Shadow will form in south direction.
