Solar System Planetary Region Chunks Matter Smaller Compared Planets Called Asteroids

In our solar system, the inter-planetary region has chunks of matter (much smaller in size compared … orbits like planets and obey…


Key concept: The Law of Orbits-. Every planet moves around the sun in an elliptical orbit with sun at one of the foci.
The Law of Area-. The, line joining the sun to the planet sweeps out equal areas in equal intervals of time, i.e. areal velocity is constant. According to this law planet will move slowly when it is farthest from sun and more rapidly when it is nearest to the sun. It is similar to law of conservation of angular momentum.
