How Fast Does the Earth Spin?
Find out how fast earth spins here!
OK. First we know that Earth's circumference is about
25,000 miles at the equator. Furthermore, we know
that it takes 24 hours for Earth to spin one time.
Thus, the math is easy: 25,000 miles/24 hours is 1040
miles per hour.
So if you stand on the equator, you are traveling 1040
miles per hour. Note, that the further you are from
the equator, the slower you will go because the
circumference is less, and thus you travel less
distance in a 24 hour period.
PS. The exact circumference of Earth is 24,901
and a day is exactly 23.56 hours.
