Solar Eclipse Problem (a math problem, not about astronomy) 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data To a good approximation, Earth and Jupiter move around the Sun in circular orbits of 1.49 x 108 km and 7.79 x 109 km radius, respectively. What is the maximum error that can arise in the prediction of solar eclipse times (as observed from Earth) on Jupiter caused by one of its moons if one fails to take into account the variation of the relative position of the two planets? Answer: 2.6 x 103 2. Relevant equations radius of earth: 6.37 x 103 km 3. The attempt at a solution I think error happens when Earth and Jupiter are aligned. But the radius of Jupiter is not given. Please help! Thanks!
