The earth rotates as soon as each and every 23 hours, fifty six minutes and 4.09053 seconds, referred to as the sidereal period, and its circumference is roughly 40,075 kilometers. Thus, the floor of the earth at the equator moves at a speed of 460 meters per second--or roughly 1,000 miles per hour.Read more
