A perfect sphere hangs in space. The sphere has an equator, and thus a north and south pole. A point starts out on the equator. Say that the equator line is the 0°, 180° and 360° line- the point sets out at an angle of 30° on a spiral that will take the point to the north pole. If the diameter of the sphere is D (ie, the length of the equator), and the point moves at the exact unwavering speed of D/108 per minute, and nothing interrupts its path, how many hours does the point take to reach the north pole?
