### Question

What is the angle of dip at the magnetic equator

### Options

A) $$45^{\circ}$$

B) $$0^{\circ}$$

C) $$90^{\circ}$$

D) $$180^{\circ}$$

### Explanation:

The angle of dip dip is the angle which the resultant earth's magnetic field makes with the horizontal.
At the magnetic equator, which is entirely along the horizontal this angle is zero
