What is the standard measurement for distance from Earth to the sun?
A.U. ....or Astronomical Units. One A.U. is equal to 149,597,870,691 kilometers or 92,955,807 miles. From the Earth to the Sun is, on average, 1 A.U.
The standard units of measurement for measuring distances in our solar system are Astronomical Units (or A.U.). One A.U. is equal to 149,597,870,691 kilometers or 92,955,807 miles. As it happens, an A.U. is also defined as the average distance from the center of the Earth to the center of the sun, so the answer to "how far is the earth from the sun" would be, on average, 1 A.U.
Average distance is about 150 million kilometers. Keep in mind, though, earth is continuously moving around the sun so this measurement in sure to change at any point in time. Earth has and oval- shaped orbit around the sun- not a perfect circle so there could be a point that the earth is at its minimal distance from the sun or at its maximum. No one knows exactly.
No meaningful comparison is possible without specifying that the distance from both bodies will be the same at the moment of measurement. If you measured the acceleration due to gravity (or your weight) some distance from the sun, and then measured the acceleration due to gravity (or your weight) at the same distance from the Earth, you would find that the measurement in the vicinity of the sun is about 332,982 times the corresponding measurement…
If you want a precise measurement at a particular time, it depends. An astronomical unit is defined as the mean distance from sun to Earth. So the Sun-Moon AU measurement would vary depending on where the earth is in it's orbit (i.e. nearer or farther than the average distance) and where the moon is in its rotation around the Earth. But the mean distance over time would still be one AU.
