# How far away are we from the sun?

The Sun is at an average distance of about 93,000,000 miles (150 million kilometers) away from Earth. It is so far away that light from the Sun, traveling at a speed of 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers) per second, takes about 8 minutes to reach us.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the radius of the sun in scientific notation?

The Sun is the largest star located at the center of the Solar System. It has a diameter of 1,390,000 km (Scientific notation: 3.19 x 10e6 km) and a radius of 56,378.15 km (Scientific notation: 5.6378 x 10e4 km) The sun gives off energy as electromagnetic radiation.

How many solar radii is the sun?

The solar radius is approximately 695,700 kilometres (432,300 miles), which is about 10 times the average radius of Jupiter, 110 times the radius of the Earth, and 1/215th of an astronomical unit, the distance of the Earth from the Sun.

How many times bigger than the Earth's radius is the sun's radius?

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.
