Answer by eventfulnights82
the tropics are imaginary lines on the earth like the equator… all they represent is where the sun no longer DIRECTLY hits the earths surface…above/ below them the sun that hits there is just light that has been reflected and deflected and is not hitting it directly like it hits at the equator

Answer by eyeque195
They don’t. The Tropic of Cancer, and The Tropic of Capricorn are latitude lines on the earth that are directly in line with the sun, at the Vernal (spring in the northern hemisphere) and Autumnal ( fall in the northern hemisphere) Equinox. That is how the seasons are measured.
Answer by logic1812
Let us not put the cart before the horse. These lines do not limit the sun, thy happen to measure the most northern and southern point the sun can appear directly overhead.
