  • the definition of a time zone is a geographical region which has the same time everywhere within it. the world has 24 time zones, one for each hour in the day. each zone runs from north to south in strips that are approximately 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) wide. (the actual width of each zone varies to accommodate political and geographical boundaries.) as the earth rotates, dawn occurs at a set hour in one time zone, then an hour later in the time zone immediately to the west and so on through the 24-hour cycle. thus, in the u.s., when it is 6 a.m. in the eastern time zone, it is 5 a.m. in the central zone, 4 a.m. in the mountain zone, and 3 a.m. in the pacific zone. medicinenet.com
