You couldn't come out the other side, gravity would be coming in at you from all directions and you would be stuck in the magma-y hotness.

No, because once you hit the halfway point, you would be digging up.

my teacher told me about this. he said in the middle its like there is no gravity since there is nothing beneath you to pull you and all directions would be up.

Did I ever say that you died? Because I'm reading it over, and no where in there does it say anything about you dieing. I just said that you would be stuck there, due to the massive gravitational force from all directions.

Read a little next time, you moron.

There is also no gravity like cauz said so it would be impossible.

he didnt say you would die, he said you would just get stuck. Which would probably be the case.. IF you could dig through solid metal.

That is true. I was basing this on if you could simply "dig through the center of the Earth". Of course, this question is all hypothetical.

No, it would be impossible by yourself to dig through the core of the earth even if it was gone.

Impossible, even if you did survive the enormous pressure and gravity would smash you in the center.

Well if you put it that way (in which there is no gravity, pressure, or heat what so ever) then yes. Are you happy now?

Okay... you come out sideways, THEN die due to massive exhaustion, starvation, and dehydration.


Happy? Confused

well i was just thinking that once you reach the core, you wouldnt be diging sort of, youd be climbing i think.....or when you reach the other side you come out head first because once you pass the core it would be pulling you back down and since you cant be upside down you be right side up?

if im wrong ignore it because im extremely sick and not thinking good...and you guys are talking this way too seriously

No, that's correct. Since BoneSaw has to be so picky in his question, then yes, you would come out head first no matter which way you went.

no because at the magnet thing in the middle it would flip you over and you would be digging up...you saw this on braniac didn't you?

This isn't a riddle. It's a scientific theoretical question. But I'll go with it.

Draw a picture. You're digging down............and you reach the middle. Now, by this time you probably would be dead, had there been gravity. But you can't die, so we must assume gravity isn't a factor.

Therefore, you also need a momentum accelerator, or a vehicle to move you downward and possibly make the job easier by digging for you. But if you didn't use it, we must say by the time you get there, time has passed by a while.

Let us assume that you have unlimited stamina and have no need for 'fuel.' If you work day and night nonstop, at approximately 50 feet per 24 hours, and the Earth being around 3500 miles in radius, you would reach the center in about 370,000 days. This being said in easier to comprehend terms, you would reach Earth's core in about 1000 years, more or less. The Earth has rotated 1000 times, 360 degrees already, so you have had to adjust yourself about 24 times each day to suit your angle digging downwards, since you are in freefall without gravity.

This means that within the thousand years that you've adjusted your position, you've done it about 9 million times. Let's ignore the fact that you're disoriented and mindboggled because of the absence of gravitational pull and continue onwards. Only, and only if you are within 2 and a half hours that you started your digging 1000 years ago will you most likely be in the same position that you were before.

That's ignoring if you'd like to dig up or down and wanted to switch sometime in between the rotations. But, as most people would, we would start digging downward (excluding magnetic pull factors)....and 2000-some years later, end up with our feet coming out of a hole somewhere in the ocean, if there is one, considering gravity is not in effect.

Yes, I was bored.

It's all gravitational pull, it pulls to the center of the Earth, so technically, you could walk everywhere in the center. (You would get stuck, but you eliminated that possibility) But, technically, I believe you'd come out head first, unless you're somehow latched too the "roof" and digging "down". Man this is confusing

this is a very open ended question, not a riddle.

also, if you dig a hole to the center of the earth the amount of magma, explosive gasses, and the supervolcano forming from where you dig would probably destroy the Earth.
