Warped Speed

The speed of light is 669,600,000 miles per hour.

On the Star Trek show, the speed of light is called Warp Factor 1. Their fastest speed is Warp Factor 9, which is 1,516 times the speed of light.

Your question: How long would it take the spaceship Enterprise to travel around the earth (at the equator) if traveling at Warp Factor 1? Warp Factor 9?
