Why do you think the Earth’s shape is geoid?

lucy eduoralucy eduora replied 4 years ago

The geoid is a shape like the surface of the Earth. … For many practical purposes, a simpler shape is used because that makes calculations easier. That shape is called a reference ellipsoid. In basic education, the shape of the Earth is described as being like an orange, a sphere but wider round the equator.

I think its geoid because, the earth rotates “ROUND” its axiz.
