# What is the Equatorial diameter of the moon?

The equatorial diameter of the moon is 2,159.2 miles. The circumference is 6,783.5 miles. It has a mean radius of 1,079.6 miles.

### Which is bigger the moon Mercury Pluto or Ganymede?

Jupiter's moon Ganymede is the largest. It is the largest moon in the Solar System. Ganymede's equatorial diameter is 5,262 km. This is about 2% larger than Saturn's moon Titan. Pluto's equatorial diameter is only 2,274 km. The Earth's Moon has an equatorial diameter of 3,476 km. Mercury's equatorial diameter is 4,880 km. It is smaller than Ganymede but more massive.

### What does the earth's rotation cause?

The Earth's rotation causes the apparent rise and set of the Moon and Sun, and its interaction with the Moon causes tides. The rotation also causes a "bulge" in the Earth's spherical shape, with the equatorial region distended outward. The equatorial diameter of the Earth is about 42.6 kilometers wider than the polar diameter (pole to pole).

### How large is the moon?

The Size of the Moon is:- The average diameter is 3,475 kilometers (2,159.3 miles) The average radius is 1,737.10 km (1079.6 Miles) The equatorial radius is 1,738.14 km (1,080.03 miles) The polar radius is 1,735.97 km (1,078.68 miles) A little more than a quarter of that of the Earth. The polar diameter is 2157.36 miles The equatorial circumference of 6786.03 miles and angular diameter of 30 arc minutes 59.61 arc seconds.

### How big is the moon?

The Moon is approximately 1/4 of Earth's diameter, 1/80th of Earth's mass and 1/50th of Earth's volume. Its gravity is about 1/6th of Earth's. The Moon has an equatorial diameter of 2,160 miles (3476 km). Other measurements include: Equatorial radius is 1,738.14 km or 1,080 miles Equatorial circumference is 10,921 km Surface area is 3.793 x 107 km2 Volume is 2.195 8 Ã— 1010 km3 Mass is 7.734 x 1022 kg Gravity is 1.622 m/s2

### Is the moon bigger then the earth it is?

The diameter of the Moon is 3,474 km. (Diameter of the Moon in miles: 2,159 miles) Since the Earth is not a perfect sphere, there are three numbers to know when answering questions about the diameter of Earth. The rotation of the planet has slightly flattened it out, so it has a larger diameter at the equator than at the poles. The equatorial diameter of Earth is 12,756 km, its polar diameter is 12,713 km…

### How many moons are larger than Pluto?

Pluto's equatorial diameter is 2,274 km. The diameter of Earth's moon is 3,476 km. Jupiter has four moons larger than Pluto:- Ganymede - diameter 5,262 km Callisto - diameter 4,800 km Io - diameter 3,630 km Europa - diameter 3,138 km Saturn has one moon larger than Pluto - Titan - diameter 5,150 km Neptune has one moon larger than Pluto - Triton - diameter 2,700 km Thus, there are seven moons larger than Pluto…

### Is the planet Uranus bigger than the sun?

Answer: No because the sun is a star Answer: No. Jupiter is the largest planet, with an equatorial diameter of about 142000km. The sun has an equatorial diameter about ten times that size. Uranus is the third largest planet, with an equatorial diameter of a measly 52000km, slightly over a third of Jupiter's.
