## The mass of Earth is 5.972 × 10 24 kg and its orbital radius is an average of 1.496 × 10 11 m. Calculate its linear momentum.

To determine

The linear momentum

### Explanation of Solution

Given info:

Mass of earth m=5.972×1027kg

Distance between earth and sun i.e. its orbital radius is

d=1.495×1011m

We know that Motion of earth is in circular path around sun

Therefore, considering it as a circular motion

Time taken will be

t=1year=365days=365×24×3600sec

We know that

speed=lengthtime=2πd365×24×3600=2π(1
