# What is Keplers third law- Describe what it means for objects in orbit.docx

What is Keplerâ€™s third law? Describe what it means for objects in orbit around other objects. Explain using an example of actual orbiting objects
Solution
Keplerâ€™s third law states that the square of the orbital period of a planet is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit.
What it means for objects in orbit around other objects.
A planet farther from the Sun not only has a longer path than a closer planet, but it also travels slower, since the Sunâ€™s gravitational pull on it is weaker. Therefore, the larger a planetâ€™s orbit, the longer the planet takes to complete it.
For example mercury has larger orbit that Earthâ€™s, so it take more time for completing the revolution.
