We have the average distance [dg] between Earth and Sun =1.5×1011m
The distance travelled d1 is given by:
d1=2π×dg=2π×1.5×1011=9.424×1011m
And v1 is given by:
v1=d1t=9.424×1011m1year=9.424×1011m365.25day×24×3600s3×104ms
The average speed of Earth =29862.85ms
The speed is given by:
v2=29862.85ms×36001609.346.7×104mih
Thus, (a) v1=3×104ms, (b) v2=6.7×104mih
