Figure shows elliptical path abcd of a planet around the sun S such that the area of triangle csa is \frac{1}{4}   the area of the ellipse. (See figure) With db as the semimajor axis, and ca as the semiminor axis.  If t1 is the time taken for planet to go over path abc and t2 for path taken over cda then :

 

  • Option 1)

    t1 = t2

  • Option 2)

     t1 = 2t2

  • Option 3)

     t1 = 3t2

  • Option 4)

     t1 = 4t2

As we learnt in

Kepler's 3rd law -

T^{2}\: \alpha\: a^{3}

From fig.

AB=AF+FB

2a=r_{1}+r_{2}

\therefore\; a=\frac{r_{1}+r_{1}}{2}

a= semi major Axis

r_{1}= Perigee

- wherein

Known as law of periods

r_{2}= apogee

T^{2}\: \alpha \: \left ( \frac{r_{1}+r_{2}}{2} \right )^{3}

{r_{1}+r_{2}= 2a

 

 \frac{t_1}{t_2}=\frac{A/2+A/4}{A/2-A/4} =\: \frac{3A/4}{A/4}\: =\:3

\therefore t_1=3t_2
