Kepler's third law states that square of the period of revolution (T) of a planet around the sun, is proportional to the third power of average distance r between the sun and planet i.e, T^{2} =Kr^{3}, here K is constant.
If the masses of the sun and planet are M and m respectively, them as per Newton's law of gravitation force of attraction between them is
The relation between G and K is described as
GK =4π^{2}
GMK =4π^{2}
K=G
K=G

4.5 R
7.5 R
1.5 R
If v_{e} is escape velocity and v_{o} is orbital velocity of a satellite for orbit close to the Earth's surface, then these are related by
