Name:1. How many laws did Kepler use to define planetary motion? 1 pointthree2. What are the laws? 6 points1) Every planet’s orbit is an ellipse with the Sun at a focus.2) A line joining the Sun and a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal times.3) The square of a planet’s orbital period is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of itsorbit3. Explain eccentricity. 4 pointsA measure of how non-circular the orbit of a body is.4. Draw two diagrams that illustrate the difference between a high eccentricity and low eccentricity. 4pointsHigh eccentricityLow eccentricityKepler’s Laws Research ActivityDirections: Doing research on your own, answer the following questions.
