Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to work out, for a given eccentricity,a known planet mass and a known value for the semi major axis is there a formula to work out the orbital speed of a planet around a central star?

I have looked around online with not much success and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction?

Cheers
