How fast is the world turning?


1 Answer

Earth's spin is constant, but the speed depends on what latitude you are located at. The circumference is roughly 24,898 miles at the equator. If you estimate that a day is 24 hours long, divide the circumference by the length of the day. This produces a speed of about 1,037 mph.
