Problem 2DQ

A planet makes a circular orbit with period ?T around a star. If it were to orbit, at the same distance, a star with three times the mass of the original star, would the new period (in terms of T ? ?) be (a)? ?, (b) (c) ?T,? (d) , or (e) ?T?/3?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 2DQ The time period of orbital revolution of the planet around the star is given by the expression, 2r T = v , where r is the radius of the orbit and v is the orbital speed. GM Orbital speed has the expression, v r , M is the mass of the star. Now, substituting this value in the...
