What is bigger? can bi interpreted as:

  1. Which is more massive?
    #M_(Earth)~~6*10^(24) kg#
    #M_(Sun)~~2 *10^(30) kg~~300,000*M_(Earth)#

  2. Which have bigger volume or radius?
    #V=4/3 pi R^3#
    #R_(Earth)~~6400 km#
    #R_(Sun)~~7 *10^5 km~~110*R_(Earth)#

The Sun is much bigger than the Earth.

The Sun is 864,400 miles (1,391,000 kilometers) across. This is about 109 times the diameter of Earth.

The Sun weighs about 333,000 times as much as Earth.

It is so large that about 1,300,000 planet Earths can fit inside of it.
