The diameter is roughly 5500 miles and the size of it around would be (estimate) around 13,000 miles.
The diameter of the earth at the equator is 12,756.32 kilometers, or 7,926.41 miles. The diameter of the earth through the poles is 12,715.43 kilometers, or 7,901 miles. Thus the earth is 41 km or 25 miles wider than it is tall, giving it a slight bulge at the equator. This shape is known as an ellipsoid or more properly, geoid (earth-like ball).

What is shape and size of the planets?

Planets, by definition are all approximately spherical in shape, though their axial rotation often means that they are oblate spheroids (look like `squashed spheres`, longer across the equator than from pole to pole). The size of the planets varies; Mercury's diameter (at the equator) = 4880km or 0.3825 x Earths diameter Venus' diameter = 12104km or 0.9488 x Earths Earth's diameter = 12756km Mars' diameter = 6794km or 0.5323 x Earths Jupiter's diameter = 142,984km or 11.21 x Earths Saturn's diameter = 120,534km or 9.45 x Earths Uranus' diameter = 51,114km or 4.01 x Earths Neptune's diameter = 49,532km or 3.88 x Earths
