# How many times bigger is the sun compared to Earth?

Jun 16, 2018

$1.30 \times {10}^{6}$ in volume

#### Explanation:

The ratio of the Sun's diameter to the Earth's diameter is
1,392,000/12756 = 109.1
This means the ratio of their volumes is 109.1 x 109.1 x 109.1, which is about 1,300,000,and that means that 1,300,000 Earths should fit inside the Sun.

Volume:
$\left(1.409 x {10}^{18} {\text{km"^3)/(1.08321 x 10^12"km"^3) = 1.30 xx 10^6"km}}^{3}\right)$
