Answer:

Approximately #940# million kilometers.

Explanation:

A rough approximation can be deduced from the following data:

  • The Earth's mean distance from the sun is approximately #150# million kilometers.

  • The Earth's orbit is roughly circular.

The circumference of a circle is given by the formula #2pi r# where #r# is the radius.

So in the case of the Earth's orbit, it is roughly:

#2pi * 150 \ "million km" ~~ 940 \ "million km"#
