how many times bigger than the moon is the sun?

-------------------------------------------------------

Ronald 7 say: The Sun is 400 times the size as our moon
It is also 400 times as far away
Hence Eclipses
-
quantumclaustrophobe say: Diameter-wise, the Sun is about 400 times larger than the moon. Volume-wise, the sun is about 64 *million* times larger than the moon...
-
Jennifer say: Not at all.
-
Jeffrey K say: The sun is 400 times the size of the moon. It is also 400 times further away. So they look the same size in earth's sky.
-
MysteryGuy say: Well i dunno, i can't really hold up the ruler to the sun cause it burns my eyes but if i was to guess the moon looks like 3 times bigger than the sun.
-
say: Its not, Mr Magoo.
-
brainyandy say: Well the diameter of the sun is more or less 400 times bigger than the moon so the volume would be 400 cubed which is 64,000,000 times bigger.
-
aladdinwa say: Why don't you delete your previous question. You can do that, you know.
-
Joseph say: You asked essentially the same question twice and both times, with just a single sentence, you butchered your native tongue beyond recognition. How about you take some remedial English classes before you concern yourself with the relative sizes of the Sun and the Moon?
-
say: About a billion or so
-
drake say: Well you could fit a little bit over a million earths into the sun and about four moons in the earth. This means the volume of the sun could fit approximately four million moons.
-
Emily say: A lot
-
Sharon say: about 400--2159.9 miles versus 864,500 miles
-
poldi2 say: Radius of the moon: 1,738 kilometers.
Radius of the sun: 695,700 kilometers.
If you think the moon is bigger, you are miseducated.
-
skeptik say: The Moon's equatorial radius is 1738.1 km
Its volume is 2.1958×10^10 km^3
Its mass is 7.342×10^22 kg

The Sun's equatorial radius is 696,342 km (400.6 times the Moon's)
Its volume is 1.41×10^18 km^3 (64 million times the Moon's)
Its mass is 1.9885×10^30 kg (27 million times the Moon's)

So depending on which you mean by "bigger," it's 400 times, 27 million times, or 64 million times bigger.

Note the corrected numbers above:
-
Zardoz say: 63.9 million.
