Orbital Velocity and Orbital Diameter
This Orbital Velocity and Orbital Diameter lesson plan also includes:
- Join to access all included materials
High schoolers explore planetary motion that is related to the planet's distance from its star and how that distance influences the planet's velocity. A hands-on activity prompts an examination of the data observed.
