Kepler’s Laws

Here is all you need to know about Kepler’s Laws.

There are 3 laws.
1] Planets move around the sun in elliptical orbits, not circular orbits.

2] Planets sweep out equal areas in equal time.

3] The ratio of the periods of two orbiting objects can be used to predict the ratio of their orbital radii.

formally: (T1/T2)^2 =(r1/r2)^3
