Problem 12.6: Kepler's laws

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The animation purports to model a solar system. However, one of the planets does not obey all of Kepler's laws for this solar system (position is given in 106 km and time is given in Earth years). Identify that planet. (The sun is yellow.) Restart.

Physlets were developed at Davidson College and converted from Java to JavaScript using the SwingJS system developed at St. Olaf College.
