# How is the mass of the earth calculated?

See below.

By applying the density formula, which links the object's mass and volume, we can get an approximation of its mass.

Mass/Volume equals density.

Assuming that the Earth is spherical and that its diameter is known, we can compute the volume from

The mass of the Earth could then be roughly calculated using an average density.

We can determine the volume more precisely thanks to satellite technology and today's advanced technology.

A formula for approximating mass of the Earth:

Units are compatible, in both dimensions and units,.

#So, m =(6378^2)(0.0098)/(6.67 E-20) kg = 5.97 E+24 kg.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
