Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why should we use kepler's 3 law, why should'nt we use 5*4=20 hrs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm because the universe obeys the law of gravity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C = 2 pi (Er+d) C/2pi = Er+d C/2pi  Er = d 4C/2pi  4Er = 4d 4C = 2pi 4(Er +d) when the distance between E and satillite is 4times as much, given that i havent completely gotten a botched idea in me head :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1note that \(F_g = \frac{GMm}{r^2}\) and \(g=\frac{GM}{r^2}\), \(v=\frac{2 \pi}{T}\) you can also use this: \(a=g=\frac{v^2}{r}=\frac{4\pi^2}{T^2 r}\) rearranging, and substituing \(g=\frac{GM}{r^2}\), \(\frac{GM}{r^2}=\frac{4\pi^2}{T^2 r}\) \(\frac{T^2}{r^3}=\frac{4\pi^2}{GM}= constant\) so you have to use this formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1p.s. gravity exists everywhere. in space away from mass, gravity will be very very close to zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mayankdevnani well it is same to ask y 2+2=4 :) well kepler derives these laws if you dont use them then you still use them;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The satellite is in orbit, so there must be a force acting on it preventing it from flying away. the only force available is gravity, which exists everywhere. And Kepler's third law follows the law of Newtons (derived above) so they hold valid.
