Homework Help: Physics/Maths

Posted by charlie on Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 3:43pm.

Keplers third law I understand.

T^2/a^3 of one planet = T^2/a^3 second planet.

But I can't do the algebra to solve for the second planet's a^3 (semimajor axis)

Would someone walk me through the steps please? Thanks.
