Orbits of Jupiter Moons

Original Title:

    Orbits of Jupiter Moons


        jupiter moons orbit kepler


          Students use a series of 31 images of Jupiter’s 4 Galilean moons to find their orbit
          periods and orbit radii. They compare their results with known data for those moons.
          Finally they test various mathematical expressions to find a “constant” relationship
          between orbit period (T) and orbit radius (R) to arrive at Kepler
          ’s 3rd Law.
