The equatorial circumference of the Earth is about 40,075 km (24,901 m).
The polar circumference of the Earth is about 40,008 km (24,860 m).
Earth is not a perfect sphere, but is "flattened" at the poles. Its shape is described as an oblate spheroid. So, the Earth's circumference is about 68 km (41 m), larger around its bellythan around its poles.
This difference is small enough that, were the earth shrunk down to the size of a billiard ball, it would be more perfectly round than most billiard balls.
Caveat: The numbers for circumference are always approximations because Earth's surface is irregular and constantly changing. The tidal bulging (constantly shifting) is a dynamic factor. Polar measurements vary with longitude. So these approximations can differ by a kilometer or two.
The circumference of Venus is very nearly the same as the Earth's. The Earth has a circumference of about 40,000 km while Venus has 38,000 km, making Venus' circumference about 95% the circumference of the Earth.
The equatorial circumference of the earth is 24,901.45 miles.
At the equator, the Earth is 40075 kilometers in circumference. The earth circumference is on average 40041.47 km : 40075.02 KM at the equator and 40,007.86 km by meridian length (polar circumference).
The earth is 40,075 km circumference at the equator. Polar circumference is 40008km.
The circumference of the earth at the equator is 40,075.16 kilometers (24,901.55 miles).
== == Given that the circumference of the earth is 40,075.02 km (measured at the equator) the circumference in inches is roughly 1,577,756,664 inches.
The diameter of Earth at its equator is 12,756 km and its circumference is about 40,075 km.
The equatorial circumference of the earth is 24901.45 miles (40075.02 km).
Best guess for Earth Circumference is 24,900 miles (40,080 km)
Do you mean what is the circumference of the earth
The circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles around the equator. I do not know the circumference of the earth the other way. Thank you, Anonymous
The circumference of the earth in miles is about 24,901 miles. The diameter is about 7,926 miles.
Multiply the diameter by pi to find the circumference
The circumference of Earth at the equator is about 24,874 miles.
Which of the following describes how Eratosthenes discovered the approximate circumference of the earth
The equatorial circumference of the Earth is approximately 40,076 km (24,902 miles). The polar circumference is slightly shorter at 40,008 km (24,860 miles).
The circumference of the planets vary. Mercury has a circumference of 9,522 miles. Venus has a circumference of 23,617 miles. Earth has a circumference of 24,889 miles. Mars has a circumference of 13,256 miles.
The average radius of the Earth is 3,959 miles. The equitorial diameter of the Earth is about 7,926 miles. The ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle is written as the symbol pi. Pi is approximately 3.141592. Therefore, to determine the circumference from the diameter given above: equitorial diameter x 3.141592 = equitorial circumference = 7,926 x 3.141592 = 24,900 = The earth has a circumference of approximately 24,900 miles. More precisely the circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,902 mi. Remember that the earth is not a completely rounded sphere.
The circumference of the Earth is measured in units of length or distance such as miles and kilometers
The equatorial radius 3,396.2 kilometers (2,110miles).The equatorial circumference of Mars is 21,339 kilometers (13,259 miles).Compared to Earth, the ratio is .533, i.e. the radius and circumference of Mars is about half the radius and circumference of Earth.
The equator is the longest line of latitude as it is located at the circumference of Earth, and the circumference of Earth is always the longest compared to anywhere as the theory is the same of the circumference of a sphere.
No. The polar circumference of the Earth is smaller than the equatorial circumference by about 41 miles or about 67 km. The Earth is a slightly "oblate spheroid" meaning it is slightly flattened (0.336%) at the poles, and bulging at the equator, due to its spin. The equatorial circumference of the Earth is about 40,075 kilometers (24,901 miles). The polar circumference of the Earth is about 40,008 kilometers (24,860 miles).
