"The mass of a star is 4.85x10^29kg. In scientific notation, Kepler's constant for that star is bx10^w s2/m3. the value of b is_____."
The Attempt at a Solution
This problem is very tough. I first assumed that K would be 0 because the star has no satellites, and therefore is experiencing linear motion, not circular motion. To my dismay however, the answer is indeed 3 digits and Kstar> 0.
The greatest obstacle is how am I to derive the period and semi major axis of its orbit, if i am only given the star's mass???!!!
Any insights into this problem are helpful.
