Classical Physics


Theorem of the Keplerian Kinematics

Authors: Hervé Le Cornec

As described in the literature the speed of a Keplerian orbiter on a fixed orbit is always the sum of a uniform rotation speed and a uniform translation speed, both coplanar. This property is stated here as a theorem and demonstrated as true. The consequences of this theorem are investigated among which the Newton's law of gravitation appears as its derivative with respect to time, the classical mechanical energy is deduced, the Galileo's equivalence principle is respected, the conic determination is simplified, as well as the description of the motion of thrusted orbiters.
