# What would the result be if the distance of the earth to the sun were more than 149million km?

If the Earth were farther from the Sun, then it would be colder on Earth. Also, the years would be longer.

### What is the mimimum distance from earth to Uranus?

roughly 2,596,840,000 km or 17.36AU (Astronomical Units, where one AU is the average sun to earth distance). The minimum distance that Uranus is from the sun is 2,748,938,461 km or 18.37551863 AU - this is known as the perihelion and would be the closest point to Earths average orbit distance. The furthest distance that the earth would be from the sun (the aphelion) is 152,098,232 km or 1.01671388 AU. The closest that the two planets…

### Average distance form the troposphere to the center of the earth?

The average height of the troposphere is 17km above the surface of the Earth.The average radius of the earth, that is the distance from its center, is 6378.1km. The two combined give a distance of 6395.1km, which would be the average distance from the top of the troposphere to the center of the Earth.

### What units would you use to express distances within the solar system explain your choice?

You would use Astronomical Units (AU). These are defined as being the average distance between the earth and sun, 1 AU is the earth to sun distance, which is around 93 million miles or 150 million km. You can use km or miles, but it becomes difficult to compare distances due to the large numbers needed. By saying 0.38AU is the sun to mercury distance for example, you can directly compare with the earth sun…

### How do you know how big the Earth is?

Calculation of distance vs. scale. When the entire earth is in view, you would simply scale the size of the earth from your view by the distance it is from you. It's not the most exact method, but when considering how massive the earth is, it's probably close enough (as you would only be a few meters off)

### If the moon was closer to the earth how would the force of gravity change?

The force of gravity varies with the inverse square of the distance. That means if the distance were doubled, the force would decrease to one-quarter. So if the Moon were to move to 90% of its current distance, the force of the Moon's gravity on things on Earth would increase by 23%. The effect of this gravity on things on Earth would be 23% higher than "almost negligible"; the only visible effect would be on…

### What would happen if the distance between the earth and the sun doubled?

The Earth would get much less sunlight, and become much colder. Also, the year would be more than twice as long - Earth would not only have to travel twice the distance in its orbit, but it would also move slower. The exact speed ratio - if that's what you are after - can be worked out with Kepler's Third Law.

### How far is Neptune from Earth?

The distance varies between 4.3 and 4.7 billion kilometers. Neptune is about 30 times farther from the Sun than Earth, and is the outermost of the 8 major planets. When the Earth is on the same side of the sun as Neptune, the distance to Neptune is shorter than the distance when the Earth is on the opposite side of the sun from Neptune. The distance also changes because both planets revolve round the sun…

### Why do you use different units of measure?

It would make no sense to measure your height in seconds, or to talk of your age in kilograms! Different characteristics need different measures. Different units are required so at to measure things on different scales accurately. You would not want to measure the distance from the earth to the sun in millimetres! The answer is approximately 150,000,000,000,000 mm. Conversely, you would not want to measure your height in kilometres: 0.0018 km approx, even less…

### How long would it take to travel 1 mile at 30 miles per hour?

You divide the distance by the speed. In this case, the result is 1/30 hours = 2 minutes. You divide the distance by the speed. In this case, the result is 1/30 hours = 2 minutes. You divide the distance by the speed. In this case, the result is 1/30 hours = 2 minutes. You divide the distance by the speed. In this case, the result is 1/30 hours = 2 minutes.

### What is the distance from the ground to hell?

The distance to the center of the earth from the "ground" is about 3,950 miles to 3,963 miles. For the purpose of this discussion, if Hell is at the center of the earth, then it is approximately 3,956.50 miles. This is about the same distance you would travel if you took a plane from Florida to Alaska.

### Distance of earth to moon in au?

The moon is approximately 75 au's from the Earth The above answer is absurd. One Astronomical Unit (AU) is the mean (average) distance from the Earth to the Sun. If that answer was correct, the Moon would have to be 75 times further from Earth than the Sun! The average distance from the center of the Earth to the center of the Moon is 0.00256957366 AU or 384,403 kilometres (238,857 mi).
