If it takes Neptune 165 years to orbit the sun, what is the distance (in Au) of Neptune from the sun? Round your answer to two decimal places ?
Equation we used here comes from the Kepler’s Third Law of Orbital Motion:
- period P, in Earth years, it takes a planet to complete one orbit of the sun is a function of the distance, in astonomical units AU, from the planet to the sun.
- relationship is given with equation
