Problem 5QQ

Choose the best answer to the following. Explain your reasoning with one or more complete sentence.

Kepler made a major break from ancient beliefs when he (a) decided to look for a system that could explain actual observations. (b) realized that gravity holds the planets in their orbits. (c) abandoned circular orbits in favor of elliptical orbits.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 2

Due to discrepancies in observations, Tycho Brahe could not properly explain planetary motion. Kepler was recruited by him to work on his observations. Kepler found Tycho’s circular orbit assumption to be anomalous and discovered that planetary orbits are elliptical, not circular.

Step 2 of 2
