I don't know the formula for calculating the magnitude of the momentum of the earth in its journey around the sun. The mass is 6x10^24kg and its radius of orbit is 1.5x10^11m.

  • Science - ,

    Velo.of earth=1.5x10^11/365x24x3600 m/sec if we take time of revolution as 365 days.
    Momentum = mass x velocity. Calculate
    1.5x10^11x6x10^24/365x24x3600 kgm
    9x10^25/1.151x10^10=7.819x10^16 kgm
