## Cemantha 3 years ago Which of the following statements or expressions is most nearly associated with Kepler's Third Law of Planetary Motion? P2 = A3 Planetary orbits revolve around two foci. A planet moves fastest when it is farthest from the sun. A planet moves slowest when it is farthest from the sun.

6. teshome0

^^ is true but i wasn't sure on the p2=a3 thing

7. Twettyty

I know that it is not the 1'st answer because that is for Kelper 3'rd law..

What was the answer for this problem I know Planetary orbits are in the shape of an ellipse.

9. MamiTomoe

You would know the answer if you played Kerbal Space Program because the same principle applies to spacecraft in elliptical orbits.
