The region of the solar system between Mars and Jupiter contains many asteroids that orbit the Sun. Consider an asteroid in a circular orbit of radius 4.3 1011 m. Find the period of the orbit.

  • Physics - ,

    First find the orbital speed(V)by equating force of attraction (between the two bodies) with the centrifugal force. Having found the speed you can find the period T= 2*pi*R/V
