Terran circumference

From NikkiWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
[Image.]  Mean circumference (C) is equal to twice the mean radius (2r) times the Archimedean constant (π): C = 2πr.  The Terran mean radius (r🜨) is equal to one third of the sum of the equatorial radius (re) and twice the polar radius (2rp): r🜨 = (2rp + re)/3. [1]

Binary fractions of the Terran mean circumference (C🜨/2n).  Values have a relative uncertainty of ±1.5696102362696618011051437320346 × 10−8. [2]

How far you are willing to travel to witness a rare astronomical event should properly be expressed as what fraction of the circumference around the planet you are willing to travel.
