Kepler's Third Law - The Equation
In this activity students try various ways of plotting sidereal period vs. orbital radius and discover the simple power-law relationship of Kepler's third law. They recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This activity was designed for an undergraduate class where students look at geological questions mathematically and may spend more time on the math than on the geology. The site includes teaching notes and tips, and
