739.70 rods is about one-three-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, it's 0.000291629 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 3,429.0143 times that amount.
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 2,536,441.80 rods at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 20,800 rods.
