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:
- Planets move in elliptical orbits with the sun at one focus.
- The line joining planets to either focus sweeps out equal areas in equal times.
- 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.
