For the calculations above, π = 3.14159265.

Speaking of the surface rotational speed of our planets, here in Taos New Mexico, which is about 2,514 miles north of the equator, the surface rotational speed is only about 838 or so miles per hour. So you can imagine that you will have fewer bad hair days here due to the wind than you would at the equator. That is not to say though, that we don't have some windy days in Taos and North Central New Mexico.
