What continent are in the east meridian?

Do you mean Eastern Hemisphere. The Prime Meridian divided the Eastern Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere, while the Equator divides Northern from Southern.

Eastwards from Greenwich (a suburb of London, UK) which holds the generally recognised zero meridian, are Europe, Asia, Australasia and Oceania. Africa is generally southwards of Europe and Asia, but is mostly eastwards of Greenwich. Only the Americas are westwards of Greenwich. Antarctica is southwards of all the other continents.
Note grammar: "What continents are....".
Please, please, look at a world map and see where we all are!!

There is no such thing as the East Meridian. A meridian is a line of Longitude. Zero Degrees Longitude is the Prime Meridian and runs from the North Pole to the Sole Pole passing through Greenwich England Royal Observatory. East of the Prime Meridian are the Continents Europe, Africa, Asia and Antarctica.

There is no one single " East Meridian".
There are, however numerous degrees meridian East of the Prime Meridian and 180 degrees East. ( in the " Eastern Hemisphere".)
It contains all of Australia, nearly all of Asia ( about 99% of it), most of Europe, most of Africa and half of Antarctica.
