Q5. Answer the following question :
“The actual shape of the earth is described as earth-shaped.” — Justify the statement.

Answer and Explanation :
The earth rotates around its axis very fast, so it is slightly pressed up and down and slightly swollen in the middle. So the world is not completely gone. Although the shape of the earth is somewhat similar to that of the orange or pear, in fact, the ‘actual shape of the earth is like the earth’. Which is called Ziad.

Uneven surface: Mount Everest has the highest elevation (8848 m) in the world, and the Mariana Range has the lowest elevation (10915 m below sea level). The difference in elevation between the highest and lowest places on earth is about 20 km. Therefore, the shape of the actual matter cannot be matched with the irregular surface of the surface.

Photographs taken by satellites: Based on the information obtained by satellites, it is known that the earth is not completely galactic. The equatorial region is swollen and the polar region is slightly compressed. It is estimated that the center of the earth is 42 km inflated.

The shape of the earth is compared to its own shape because there is no similarity between this shape of the earth and the earth. For this reason, the actual shape of the earth can be called ‘earth’s power’, which is called ‘geoid’ in geography.
