At what speed does the earth orbit the sun?


Answer by  LauraLS (195)

The Earth orbits the Sun at about 30 kilometers per second, or about 67000 miles per hour. We don't feel this motion because the Earth doesn't CHANGE speed or direction very rapidly. For example, you can feel an airplane take off and land, but you don't feel yourself traveling at 400 miles per hour through the air.

The earth's is about 150 million kilometers from the sun, meaning that the earth travels about 940 million kilometers per year. That translates to moving at about 107,000 kilometers per hour (or 67,000 miles per hour). The speed varies a bit but that's a good average.
