The orbital period of Planet A is 16 years and its average distance to Star B is

5.25 a.u. Another planet called Planet C has an average distance of 10.3 a.u.

from Star B, using Kepler’s Third Law of Planetary Motion, compute the orbital

period of Planet C to Star B in days.

Redshift measurements show that a galaxy is moving away from the Earth at the speed of 60000 km/s. Taking the Hubble constant H, as 2.2 x 10-18s¹ and 1 light-year as 10¹3 km, calculate and show your working for:

a)how far the galaxy is from the Earth distance

b)how long it has taken light from the galaxy to reach the Earth

c) the time the galaxy and the Milky Way have been travelling apart

d) Explain the significance of the time you calculated in c part of the question
