Earth is approximately 93 000 000 mi from the sun. It revolves around the sun, in an almost circular orbit, in about 365 days. To the nearest mile how far does earth travel in its orbit in one week?

1 week x 7 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds =604,800 seconds in 1 week.

 

Orbital Speed of Earth =~30 km/second =~18.6 miles / second

 

604,800 x 18.6 =~11,249,280 miles in 1 week.
