Physics/Through Space


This is not homework, I'm 30 years old.

If a moon's velocity is 300 meters/second and it's orbiting a planet whose velocity is 500 meters/second, what is its actual velocity through space, or the equation to find it ?


Sure Christine, Thanks for your question !

Miles Per Hour = Meters Per Second x 2.2369362920544

Formula Solution:
1 meter per second x 60 seconds x 60 minutes = 3600 meters traveled per hour
1 mile = 63360 inches (5280 feet x 12 inches)
1 inch = 0.0254 Meters
1 Mile = 1609.344 = 63360 x 0.0254

Much Happiness,
Spaceman :-)
