Earth ranks 3rd in terms of proximity to the sun and 4th in terms of soil density. We probably don’t know that it is the only planet where there is life. To mention the formation of the earth; we can talk about the fact that the planet we live on is about 4.467 billion years old and that the meteorite collisions that took place during the formation, the ice in the structures of these meteorites, silicate and other metals formed the land and sea. When calculating the age of the earth, not only the age of the rocks but also the difference between a lead mineral and an isotope of lead in the oceans is taken into account. The shape of the earth is flat because the circumference of the equator and the circumference of the poles are not the same. In Latin, this structure is called “Geoid”.
Its diameter is about 12,742 kilometres. We mentioned that the length of the circle connecting the equator and the poles is not the same. This difference is about 43 kilometres. It should be noted that the highest point is the summit of Mount Everest (8,848 m), and the deepest point is the bottom of the Mariana Trench (10,924 m).
