Based on Kepler's observations about planetary motion, what is the relationship between a planet's orbital velocity and its distance from the sun?(1 point)

The greater the distance, the greater the orbital velocity.***

As distance is cut in half, orbital velocity decreases.

The greater the distance, the slower the orbital velocity.

Distance has no effect on orbital velocity.

  1. distance and orbital velocity are inversely related

    the area of the orbital ellipse swept by a planet is a constant
