Announcement: This Saturday at The Science Circle - "Celestial Orbits, Part I"
Saturday, February 22nd
at 10AM PST
Here I present the basic physics that underpins the orbits of celestial bodies. Starting from Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation, and using many examples from everyday life, I elucidate fundamental concepts of mass and weight, true and fictitious forces, potential and kinetic energy, and orbital trajectories. This lays the groundwork for future talk(s) on celestial orbits.
