Given that

Sun's diameter d = ?

Distance between the Sun and Earth D = 1.496 * 10^{11} m

Angular diameter of the sun \theta = 1920''

\theta = 1920 * 4.85 * 10^{-6} rad

\theta = 9.31 * 10^{-3} rad


Step 1: Develop a figure using the details provided.

  


Step 2: Finding the diameter of the sun

From the figure:

AB is a diameter of the Earth  

Assumption: AB is considering as a arc.

Arc length d = D \theta

d = 1.496 * 10^{11} * 9.31 * 10^{-3}

d = 1.39* 10^{9} m

Hence, diameter of the sun d = 1.39* 10^{9} m
