A planet makes a circular orbit with period T around a star. If the planet were to orbit at the same distance around this star, but the planet had three times as much mass, what would the new period (in terms of T ) be:

Solution to 8DQ Step 1 Introduction The mass of the planet is increased 3 times of its original mass while keeping the orbital radius constant, we need to find the new time period. For an object revolving around a mass in a certain orbit of radius...
