If the value for k for planets moving around our sun is 3.35 *10^18 m^3s^2, what would the period of a planet be if its average radius to the sun is 3.2*10^8?

    I believe you're familiar with Kepler's third law, \(\frac{T^2 }{r^3}=k\)?

    T^2 = 4pi^2/GM a^3?

    Yeah, but you don't need that complicated equation here since k is given as 3.35 *10^18 m^3s^2.

    You used this? \(r^3 = \frac{10.24 \times 10^{16}}{3.35 \times 10^{18}}\)

    T = K a^3 sqrt/3.35E18 * (3.2E8)^3
