88. (a) The time for one revolution is the circumference of the orbit divided by the speed v of the Sun: T = 2 π R / v , where R is the radius of the orbit. We convert the radius: R × = × 23 10 4 . ly 9.46 10 km / ly 2.18 10 km 12 17 ch c h where the ly km conversion can be found in Appendix D or figured “from basics” (knowing the speed of light). Therefore, we obtain
