Suppose there existed a planet that went around the sun twice as fast as the earth.What would be its orbital size as compared to that of the earth?

Time taken by the Earth to complete one revolution around the Sun,

Te = 1 year

Orbital radius of the Earth in its orbit, R= 1 AU

Time taken by the planet to complete one revolution around the Sun, TP = ½Te

= ½ year

Orbital radius of the planet = Rp

From Kepler’s third law of planetary motion,

Hence, the orbital radius of the planet will be 0.63 times smaller than that of the Earth.

The position co-ordinates of two particles of masses m1 and m2are (x1, y1, z1) and (x2, y2, z2) respectively. Find the coordinates of the centre of mass.

The position vectors of masses m1 and m2 are respectively,

Let the position coordinates of the centre of mass be (X, Y, Z).

Therefore the position vector of centre of mass is,

Since,

Comparing the coefficients of  , we get
