What did Kepler discover about planets and their orbital speed? Kepler's Law

  • Planets with the greatest mass will orbit the Sun with the fastest orbital speed.
  • Planets furthest from the Sun will orbit with the fastest orbital speed.
  • Planets closest to the Sun will orbit with the fastest orbital speed.
  • Planets with the least mass will orbit the Sun with the fastest orbital speed.

  1. Kepler’s 3rd law states the square of the orbital period is proportional to the cube of the orbital radius. (T2=r3)If a planet's orbital radius is doubled, what happens to the length of a year on that planet?

  2. The speed at which any planet moves through space is constantly changing. In a perfectly circular orbit, the orbital radius of the planet would be constant and therefore so would be its observed angular velocity. In elliptical orbits, the velocity varies. In elliptical orbits, the orbital radius of the satellite will vary and therefore so will its velocity. The planet travels "faster" when closer to the Sun, then "slower" at a more distant radius. According to Newton's 2nd Law, what is the underlying force behind this change in velocity?
