Mean Orbital Speed


The orbital speed of a body, generally a planet, a natural satellite, an artificial satellite, or a multiple star, is the speed at which it orbits around the barycenter of a system, usually around a more massive body. It can be used to refer to either the mean orbital speed or the speed at a particular point in its orbit. Taking into account the mass of the orbiting body,
