Ans:- 5.61 Hours

Soln:-

v(avg)=sqrt(8RT/piM)
sustituting the values, we get,
v(avg)=630m/s
diamter of earth=12732km=12732000m

therfore, time=12732000/(630*60*60)=5.61 hours

Good work Nishant and nice try chirag. The average velocity is about 444m/s which gives time =8hrs

I have checked my soln, still I am getting 630m/s.

Pl tell me how did you get 444m/s
