Part 1 : Orbital Speeds of the Planets in the Solar System ( 27 pts total Procedure Note rounding instructions ! ) Though the orbits of the eight planets are ellipses , the orbital paths have rather low eccentricities , In other words , their orbits are fairly lose approximations of a circle . We can calculate the length of a circular orbital path using the simple formula for the circumference of a circle : 2 ur . where is the radius or in the case of the solar system , the average distance from the planet to the Sun 1 . Using the radius of orbit data in column 3 ( see table below ) calculate the length of each planet 's orbit and place in column 4 Round each answer to 2 decimal p laces . ) Planet Mass Radius of orbit Length of Orbit Orbital Period Orbital Speed ( kg ) ( + 10 YET ) ( X 109 km ) Orbital Period ( kris ) Mercury 3.3 x 1023 87 . 969 days 0. 2408 yea Venus 4 9 * 10 24 224 .700 days 0. 6152 yea Earth 60 * 10 24 365 . 25 days 10 year Mars 6 4 X 10 20 2.28 68 6 97 1 days 8 808 years Jupite 9 * 10 27 7.79 11 859 years Saturn 57 * 10 20 35 29 457 years Uranus 87 * 10 25 28.77 84 323 years Neptune 0 * 1026 45 03 8479 years Express in appropriate scientific notation Next calculate the number of seconds in a year ( use 3 decimal places and scientific notation )
