QUESTION OF THE DAY:

[Astronomy]: How many times larger is the sun than the earth?
ANSWER:

The sun is 330,330 times heavier than the Earth, but much less dense than (only 25% as dense as) the Earth.


 EarthSunSun:Earth Ratio
Mass.6x1025Kg. 2x1030Kg. 330,330 times
Density5.5g/cm.31.4g/cm.3.25 times
Diameter  110 times
Surface Area  12,000 times
Volume  1.3x106 times


Since the Earth is about 4 times more dense than the Sun, if you dropped the Earth on the Sun it would sink like a chunk of lead in water.
