### # Basic/Interesting question to solve:

The diameter of earth is 12,756 km. Now that we know that:

• What is the circumference of Earth at the equator?
• What is the circumference of Earth at the 42nd latitude?
• What's the volume of earth?
• What's the surface area?
• A plane travels at 900km per hour
• how long does it take to fly from top to bottom?
• It flies at 12.7km from the surface. How long now?
• It has acceleration of 1 m/s^2. How long now?
• Calculate the volume of each:
• 0–35km Crust
• 35–2,890km Mantle
• 2,890–5,150km Outer core
• 5,150–6,360km Inner core

Gravity

• How much gravitational force does the moon have on the earth?
• How much does the sun have?
• What are the tides different? Earth friction? Positioning of moon + sun? Natural dissonance of tides compounding?

Relativity

• I am standing at a clock tower (hint: twin paradox)
• I travel for 1 hour at the speed of light away from the clock. I look at my watch. What is the time on my watch? I look at the clock. What is the time on the clock?
• I travel for 1 hour at the speed of light back to the clock. I look at my watch. What is the time on my watch? I look at the clock. What is the time on the clock?
