The equitorial diameter of the Earth (distance from one side of the Earth to the other at the equator) is about 7,926 miles. So the circumference is 7,926 * pi = 24900.2633 miles. Divide 7,926 by 2 to get the radius: 3963 miles. Add six feet to this radius: 3963 mi + (6 ft / 5280 ft) = 3963.001136 miles. The new circumference is 3963.001136 x 2 x pi = 24900.27051 miles. Subtract for the difference: 24900.27051 - 24900.2633= 0.00721 miles or 38 feet.

Because when you travel in longitude, you can go all the way around the Earth, 360 degrees, crossing new longitudes all the way . But when you travel in latitude, the farthest you can travel is from one pole to the other pole ... halfway around the Earth, 180 degrees. Once you reach the opposite pole, if you keep going farther, you're just crossing latitudes that you've already crossed once.

Mars orbits farther from the sun,tthan Earth does, meand its orbital circumference is longer. Additionally, the farther out an orbiting object is, the slower it travels. So, to complete one orbit, Mars has to travel farther than Earth does and at a slower speed.
