### How fast in miles per hour does the earth spin at the equator how fast at the north pole?

The Earth spins at a rate of about 15 degrees per hour. At the
equator, the "tangent velocity" is about 1,066 miles per hour, and
this speed decreases as latitude increases. At mid-latitudes in the
United States - or in Australia - the velocity is between 600 and
800 miles per hour.
At either pole, the velocity is approximately zero.

I learned it was about 1000 miles pur hour
The Earth spin speed in miles is 25000/24 or just over 1000 mph.
This is based on the equators Earth circumference of 25,000 mi and
that the Earth rotation is in 24 hrs.
The earth spins at the rate of (one complete spin plus a tiny bit
more) every 24 hours.
If you're standing on the equator, then you're moving toward the
east at about
1,040 miles per hour.
If you're standing halfway between the equator and either the
north or south pole,
then you're moving toward the east at about 735 miles per
hour.
If you're standing 70 miles from the north or south pole, then
you're moving
toward the east at about 18 miles per hour.
If you're standing right on top of the north or south pole, then
you're just spinning,
not moving east or west.

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Length and Distance

### What is kilometre?

A kilometre is the same thing as a kilometer ... it's a
distance. There are about
twenty thousand kilometers from the north pole to the south
pole.
A mile is pretty close to 1.609 kilometers. Going 60 miles per
hour is about the
same as going 100 kilometers per hour.
There are 39.37 inches in a meter, and 1,000 meters in a
kilometer.
