If all the blood vessels in a single human body were stretched end to end,

they would form a string capable of going around the world....


What's the circumference of the world??

A: The circumference of the earth

The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,901.55 miles (40,075.16 kilometers).

But, if you measure the earth through the poles the circumference is a bit shorter - 24,859.82 miles (40,008 km). This the earth is a tad wider than it is tall, giving it a slight bulge at the equator. This shape is known as an ellipsoid or more properly, geoid (earth-like).





How many miles of blood vessels are contained in the body?

If they could be laid end to end, the blood vessels would cover a distance of about 60,000 miles (96,500 kilometers).
