The mountain peak of Chimborazo is the farthest from the center of the earth. Chimborazo is 2.1 kilometers farther from the Earth's center compared to Everest.
Any circle on the Earth's surface whose center is at the center of the Earth is called a "great circle". Any circle with its center anywhere else is called a "small circle". Spiritually, many consider the kaaba (Mecca) to be the center of the Earth's surface.
The weight of an object is its mass times the acceleration of gravity. The acceleration of gravity at the center of the Earth is zero. A 1 kg mass at the center of the Earth still has a mass of 1 kg, but the force of attraction between the 1kg mass and all the other mass around it will add up to zero.
The geocentric theory that Earth is at the center of the universe.
The furthest point from Antarctica would be near the geographic North Pole, which is in Canada. The country whose southernmost border is the furthest from Antarctica would be Iceland.
The Earth's orbit is not a perfect circle but an ellipse whose eccentricity is 0.0167 (a perfect circle has eccentricity = 0). Its semi-major axis is 149,600,000 km. At its nearest (perihelion) the Earth is 147,100,000 km from the Sun and at its furthest (aphelion) it is 152,100,000 km.
That's a "central angle", but the part that really fascinates me is this: What would it look like if you hadan angle whose vertex was in the center of the circle and whose sides didn't intersect ? ? ?
x2 + y2 = 2
It will be the same angle subtended by its circumference.
-- The 'great circle' route is the shortest distance between any two places on Earth (or on any other sphere). -- A great circle is a circle on the surface whose center is at the center of the Earth. -- The phrase "around the globe" is really not too clear.
Claudius Ptolemy's (wrong) theory with the Earth at the center of the universe lasted for more than 1000 years
Aristarchus of Samos, a Greek mathematician and astronomer, is the first person whose name has come down through the ages who suggested that the Earth moved around the Sun instead of the Sun moving around the Earth.
One kilogram. Mass is invariant.The weight at that point is zero. But the mass doesn't change.
The Catholic Church held that the Earth was the center of the universe and all other planets and the sun revolved around the Earth. They did put to death those who insisted otherwise.
No. A fumble on the quarterback/center exchange is always charged to the QB, regardless of whose error it was.
That is the central angle.
The Sun is NOT the center of the universe, and nobody has suggested that it is. The first person (or at least, the first whose name we know) to state that the Earth went around the Sun was the Greek astronomer and mathematician Aristarchus of Samos.
(x-0)² + (y-0)² = r²
It is the subtended angle of the arc
gunther IV is the richest dog on earth
Determine the weight of a person on the Moon whose weight on the Earth is 183 lb.
No. Every circle on the sphere whose center is also the center of the sphere is a great circle. If the circle's center is not also the center of the sphere, then the circle is a small circle.
