R1 = distance of the earth from the sun.
T1 = Earth's orbital period.
R2 = distance of the planet from the sun.
T2 = orbital period.
The earth takes 1 year to revolve around the sun at 1 A.U. distance (an astronomical unit = 93,000,000 miles). If a planet were 4 A.U. from the sun, how many years would it take to make 1 orbit?
R1 = 1 A.U.
T1 = 1 y
R2 = 4 A.U.
T2 = ?
A . Is your answer
I want thanks from you guys
A. Because it is the nearest planet to the sun
Explanation: as it is nearest to the sun it move faster than the other planets and it must not take much time as the other planets
A. Because it is the nearest to the sun
Since Mercury is closest to the Sun, it would have to have a higher orbital velocity than Earth. ... This is why Mercury is the fastest planet relative to our sun. This is also why the further a planet is from the sun, the lower the orbital velocity (as long as the orbit is near circular, if not, circular).
A. Earth rotates on its axis as it revolves around the sun
this is the answer beacuse it is a accepted fact and the remaining choices aren't true
Although this is a brief and plain answer, I hope this answers your question! OwU
