AST 101 INTRODUCTORY ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM LABORATORY ASSIGNMENT #4 CO-OP LAB ASSIGNMENT #1 Densities of Jupiter and Saturn's Moons OBJECTIVE:...

Hi, let me know if you'd like to work on a similar lab you helped me with in the passed. 

For this lab assignment, you will have to create a procedure using stellarium to determine the density and eprcentage of rock vs. ice that make up the largest moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

The first attachment is the lab you have to complete. The second is just an example how it should look. 


AST 101 INTRODUCTORY ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM LABORATORY ASSIGNMENT #4 CO-OP LAB ASSIGNMENT #1 Densites of Jupi±er and Sa±urn’s Moons OBJECTIVE: FOR THIS LAB ASSIGNMENT, YOU SHOULD CREATE A PROCEDURE USING STELLARIUM TO DETERMINE THE DENSITY AND PERCENTAGE OF ROCK VS. ICE THAT MAKE UP THE LARGEST MOONS OF JUPITER AND SATURN. YOU WILL INCLUDE ALL SECTIONS IN THE PREVIOUS LAB ASSIGNMENTS. Equatons of use: Densi±y=Mass/Volume Percent Rock (%)= -(90-100*Density)/2.6 Hypo±hesis Wri±e your hypo±hesis here In±roducton Wri±e your in±roducton here Objectves Wri±e your objectves here Procedure Wri±e your Procedure here Discussion Wri±e your Discussion here Conclusion Wri±e your Conclusion here References Wri±e your References here

AST 101: INTRODUCTORY ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM LABORATORY ASSIGNMENT #2 Kepler and the Laws of Motion of the Planets Hypothesis Kepler’s asserton ThaT all planeTs and celestal objecTs observed To move, do so in elliptcal orbiTs. Queston Asked: How can we empirically prove Kepler’s 3 rd Law? Introduc±on Johannes Kepler was maThematcal wizard who worked wiTh ±ycho Brahe. Using ±ycho’s deTailed observatons of The celestal objecTs, Kepler was able To come up wiTh empirical solutons To how The planeTs move and discovered ThaT Their moton was elliptcal. A facT, which rescued The Copernican HeliocenTric model from iTs’ many inaccuracies. Summarized as The Three laws: Kepler's gave The Three scientFc laws of planeTary moton which has uTmosT imporTance in deTerminaton of The celestal objecTs orbiTs and Their moton. ±he Three laws are as follows: 1. ±he orbiT of a planeT is an ellipse wiTh The Sun aT one of The Two foci. Explanaton: ±he planeT moves in an elliptcal paTh around The Sun and sun is aT one of The foci of The ellipse. Source: h²p://csep10.phys.uTk.edu/asTr161/lecT/hisTory/kepler.hTml 2. A line segmenT joining a planeT and The Sun sweeps ouT equal areas during equal inTervals of tme. Explanaton: IT means ThaT The imaginary line drawn from The cenTer of The sun To The cenTer of The planeT will sweep ouT equal areas in equal

intervals of Tme. ±hus, the planet travels faster when closer to the sun, then slower when farther from the sun. Kepler's second law states that the blue sector has constant area. Source: h²p://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/history/kepler.html 3. ±he square of the orbital period of a planet is proporTonal to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. ExplanaTon: It means that the P 2 a− 3 is a constant value for all the planet. ±hus, ±he square of the orbital period of a planet is directly proporTonal to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit.
