What is the ratio of the spin angular momentum of the Earth and its orbital angular momentum about the Sun. The mean radius of the earth is R_earth = 6400 km. The radius of the Earth's orbit is r_s = 1.5 * 10^8 km. For simplicity you may assume that the mass of the Earth is uniformly distributed throughout its volume.
