Q-7 The diameter of the moon is approximately one fourth of the diameter of the earth. Find the ratio of their surface areas.

Solution:

  • Consider the diameter of earth be and that of the moon will be
  • Radius of the earth
  • Radius of the moon

Ratio of their surface area

So, the ratio of their surface areas.
