 Help me! homework Parts A through C all refer to the orbit of a single comet around the Sun. Each of the four diagrams below represents the orbit of the same comet, but each one shows the comet passing through a different segment of its orbit around the Sun. During each segment, a line drawn from the Sun to the comet sweeps out a triangular-shaped, shaded area. Assume that all the shaded regions have exactly the same area. Rank the segments of the comet’s orbit from left to right based on the length of time it takes the comet to move from Point 1 to Point 2, from longest to shortest. If you think that two (or more) of the diagrams should be ranked as equal, drag one on top of the other(s) to show this equality. Read 908 times 1 Reply
