Welcome to my 2021 submission for TigerHacks! The theme for this years hackathon was "space." My submission is a program that examines Keplar's laws in classical mechanics. The statments of Kepler's laws are as follows:

Kepler's Laws

  1. Planets move in elliptical orbits with the sun at one focus.
  2. The line joining planets to either focus sweeps out equal areas in equal times.
  3. The square of the period is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis (half the longer side of the ellipse): T^2∝a^3

Kepler originally developed these laws in relation to planetary orbits. However, their results hold true for any system with a radial force that obeys the inverse square law.
