(a) Calculate Earth’s orbital speed in this new configuration. (b) What is the ratio of the orbital speed calculated in (a) to Earth’s present orbital speed of 29.8 km/s? Assume that the radius of Earth’s orbit remains unchanged. (c) What would be Earth’s new period of revolution? (The Sun’s mass remains unchanged).

a.121m/s
b.0.00406c. 248 y

## Given Information

The new radius of the sun (R) =5.90×1012m

## concept of interstellar space and excitation space

Here, sun is affected by the gravitational force upto the distance from the centre of sun to centre of the earth, say r

So

Mass of the Sun up to radius r ## calculations

(a)

Total mass of sun in extended radius R.

$M=\frac{4}{3}{\mathrm{m}}^{3}·P$

$\beta =\frac{{M}^{s}}{\frac{4}{3}7{R}_{S}}3$

$M={\left(\frac{r}{R}\right)}^{3}{M}_{8}$

So, this mass(M/) affect the earth

To find the speed of the earth, set centripetal for to gravitational force

Fc=Fg (b)

Now the ratio of speeds,

$\frac{y}{{v}_{0}}=\frac{121}{29.88×{10}^{3}}$

=0.0406
