Well, ... how far is an AU, astronomical unit?
2.23795229 × 1022 m2
No. an AU is a distance. It is the mean distance of the earth from the sun. It is approximately
1 AU = 150 million kms
Now, knowing that how much is 1.5 billion kms?
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
@JamesJ 0.1 AU?
1 AU = 150 million kms
0.1 AU = 15 million kms
Does that sound right to you?
Also, could it possibly be the case that Saturn is closer to the sun than the earth?!
@JamesJ ohh okay so it would be 100AU then?
1 AU = 150 million kms.
How much is 100 AU?
1 AU = 150 million = 150,000,000
10 AU = 1,500,000,000
100 AU = 15,000,000,000
So what's the right answer?
@JamesJ 100 AU
Wait no. The question is this: Saturn is at a distance approximately of 1.5 billion kms from the Sun.
How many AU is that?
what is kms?
@JamesJ what is kms?
1 km = 1000 meters
The earth is about
150,000,000 kilometers from the sun, or
this is called 1 AU, because it's convenient.
Yes, Saturn is a distance of 10 AU from the sun.
Hence how many more times is Saturn distant from the sun than the earth?
The Earth is a distance 1 AU from the Sun
Saturn is a distance of 10 AU from the Sun
Hence Saturn is 10 times further away from the Sun than the Earth.
This works in any units of distance of course:
Earth-Sun: 150,000,000 kms
Saturn-Sun: 1,500,000,000 kms ... which is 10 times more
