What is the circumference of the sun?
What assumption must be made about the suns rays if you use eratosthenes method for determining the circumference of a large sphere?
you must think that the sun's rays are parallel and never touching, therefore all create the same angle.
The circumference of the earths orbit around the sun is approximately 590 000 000 miles.
The circumference of a circle measures the distance around the circle.
Accepting 864,000 miles as the sun's diameter leads us to a circumference of 171,980,332,300 inches. Of course, the 864,000 miles is a wildly rounded simplification, but some…thing tells me it'll be close enough to serve the needs of this question.

approximately 109 earths would fit around the circumference of the sun
Circumference is the specific term for the length of the perimeter of a circle. The perimeter of a circle is the circumference, and to find it, we need to know the radius or d…iameter of the circle. (As the diameter of a circle equals twice the radius of the circle, knowing one will mean we can know the other.) If we compare circles, we will find that all circles, regardless of their size, have something in common. The something is that all circles have in common is that the ratio between the diameter of any circle and its circumference is a constant. It's always the same for any size circle. And it's an irrational number we call pi. You've heard that, and that's what it is - a ratio. It's equal to about 3.14159 or so. (We know pi is an irrational number.) To find the circumference (c) of any circle, multiply pi (π) times its diameter (d). Or, multiply 2 times its radius (r) times pi (π). Same thing. Here are the two "versions" of the formula. c = π x d or c = 2 x π x r c equals pi times d or c equals two times pi times r. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on circumference.
Saturn's orbit is about 9 000 000 000 kilometers in circumference.
The circumference of an object - particularly a circle - is the distance around the outside of it.
The circumference is the distance around a closed curve. It is used to mean the perimeter of a circle. The circumference is the distance around a closed curve (i.e. a circle…).
To work out the circumference of a circle, you need to do pi multiplied by the diameter. The diameter is the distance from one end to the other. Pi = 22/7 or 3.141...
the circumference of eris is 27122.2 km
Eratosthenes, Greek philosopher and scientist. his methods are still unknown. had something to do with apparent angles of the sun at Noon in different locations
The Sun's diameter is 1.4 million kilometers (870,000 miles). But to most people, that still doesn't give them an appreciation of the Sun's size. The circumference …C at the sun's equator can be calculated: C = pi times d
there are 349 805 310 moons can fill the cicircumference of the sun
If you divide the circumference of the sun by its diameter you will have found the number called "Pi". The actual number is an infinite string of digits that starts 3.14159. … This is true for any circle of any size: The circumference divided by the diameter equals Pi. Conversely if you know the diameter you can multiply that by Pi (3.14159) and that will give you the circumference. The diameter multiplied by Pi equals the circumference.
