How long does it take for Saturn’s equatorial flow, moving at 1500 km/h, to encircle the planet?

Compare your answer with the wind-circulation time on Jupiter. (tJupiter=240h)


1 Answer

  • Saturn’s diameter is 116,464 km. So, it’s circumference is

    C = pi x D

    C = 3.141592 x 116,464 km

    C = 365,882 km

    Now, just divide the circumference by speed – 363,882 km / 1500 km/h
