Help? This is for my astronomy class. Can anyone explain this to me please. thank you so much. the earth take 365.25 days to orbit the sun. What is it's relative speed to the stars in days? hours? Hint: v=d/t

    distance = 360 degrees and the time= 24 hours=1 day

    Are we to assume the star in question is the sun? the terms stars (plural) is confusing.

    Can we assume the radius of this huge circlular orbit is 8 million miles?

    Calculate the circumference using D of 16 millions miles and pi C=50.3 million miles. Using your hint v=(50.3 10^6)/(365.25 x 24 hrs)

    Gee what was I thinking, I meant a radius of 98 million miles or a diameter of 196 million miles, giving a circumference of 615.75 million miles using the d=rt equation, v=615.75 million/(365.24 days)=1.69 million miles per day, or .07 million miles per hour.
