You detect a star that appears to be moving in a circle with a velocity of 20m/s and a period of 70 days. It is assumed this motion is due to the gravitational force by a planet orbiting the star. The mass of the star is 2*10^30kg. Determine the mass of the planet and its orbital radius.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2021, 11:06 am ad1c9bdddf
The solution is very clear with good explanations for determining the mass of the planet and its orbital radius.
