Quick Quiz The elliptical shapes of planetary orbits can be defined by parameter e , called the eccentricity. The eccentricity of the earth's orbit is 1. 0 2. close to 0 3. close to 1 4. 1 5. infinity

Kepler's Laws From careful astronomical observations, Johannes Kepler was able to formulate three empirical laws of planetary motion. Kepler's 1 st Law: The path of each planet about the Sun is an ellipse (not a circle) with the Sun at one focus. In practice à

Kepler's Laws Kepler's 2 nd Law: A line drawn between the sun and a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal amounts of time. For a circular orbit, that is easy to see. For an elliptical orbit, it means that a satellite speeds up closer to the sun.

Quick Quiz Two planets orbit a star. Planet 1 has orbital radius r 1 and planet 2 has r 2 = 4 r 1 . Planet 1 orbits with period T 1 . Planet 2 orbits with period A. T 2 = T 1 . B. T 2 = T 1 /2. C. T 2 = 8 T 1 . D. T 2 = 4 T 1 . E. T 2 = 2 T 1 . T 2 r 3 T r 3/2 T 2 T 1 = r 2 r 1 3/2

Kepler's Laws Kepler's 3 rd Law: The square of the period of one full orbit is proportional to the cube of the radius. For circular orbits: T 2 = 4 π 2 GM r 3 This applies to the motion of planets around the sun, as well as to satellites around planets. One interesting case is a geosynchronous orbit , in which a satellite orbits the earth in 24 hours.

Satellite Orbits For satellites in circular orbits, Newton's 2 nd law gives: F = GMm r 2 = ma r = mv 2 r For circular orbits only: v = GM r What is the total energy of a satellite in a circular orbit?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
