Assume that the Earth is a sphere.

Let radius of the Earth be r.

Distance traveled by the person's feet = Circumference of circle with radius "r" =

Distance traveled by the person's head =Circumference of circle with radius of "r + h" =

So, the persons head would have traveled an extra distance of than his feet.
