Can someone briefly explain to me how Kepler's law of planetary motion uses differential calculus?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm searching for a topic for a 7 page report on a mathematical concept that uses differential calculus. I thought about Kepler's law on planetary motion, but I have a very vague understanding on the concept of his laws. So, if someone could briefly fill me in on how the two are related, that will really help me get started (and confirm it as my topic).

Any help is appreciated.

If you have any other ideas for a research topic for me, please feel free to list them here.

Thanks :)
