Suppose a metal band stretched around the Earth at the equator. The length of this circular band would be 24901.143 miles (131478035 feet). If this band were to be lengthened by 6 feet and the band were suspended evenly around the Earth above the equator, would you expect there to be a noticeable space between the new band and the surface of the Earth? Find the distance between the lengthened metal band and the surface of the Earth in feet.
I have no clue how to start this so if somebody can just tell me how to get started I should be able to finish...Thanks!
