Hey guys, i have a math assignment that involves astronomy of our solar system. I need to come up with research question/aim that can be answered using math, like calculus and linked to astronomy. Do you guys have any tips or suggestions?
Im in highschool calc which basically means I know the basics about integral and differentiation. But I know the concepts and meanings behind differentiation such as acceleration, velocity and instantaneous rate.
Perhaps focus on something simple such as Kepler Laws.
Second one can be proofed in terms of a differential with respect to time and it should be fairly straightforward if you know concepts of angular momentum and circular motion.
Although, it is still difficult to judge what kind of level you require
If that wouldn't do the trick then the first response seems like a reasonable one to do. Good Luck
Some suggestions might be to try and derive Kepler's law of periods from conservation of angular momentum. If you want to impress your teacher, this will do the trick. Ask your resident AP Physics teacher, he will tell you what you need to know, or otherwise look it up. Its a fairly standard, straightforward calculation that is included in most textbooks nowadays.
try to show that in fact we can't predict acurately the future of the solar system
