S safeer

Given,

The distance of Jupiter, D = 824.7 \times10^6\ km

Angular diameter, \Theta = 35.72''= 35.72 \times 4.848 \times 10^{-6} rad         (\because 1'' = 4.848 \times 10^{-6} rad)

Let diameter of Jupiter = d km

\\ \therefore d = \theta \times D = 824.7 \times 10^6 \times 35.72 \times 4.848 \times 10^{-6} \\ = 1.428 \times 10^{5}\ km    (\because \theta = \frac{d}{D})
