The earth takes 4388 hours 17 minutes and 32 seconds to orbit halfway around the sun
It only take 4372 hours 57 minutes and 13 seconds to orbit the other half
I guessed at this time. I know it's wrong but there is a difference between the 2 half's. I don't know what it is. I want to be able to write the two sentences above with true values.
When the earth moves towards aphelion it is moving further from the suns gravity and slows down
When the earth moves towards perihelion it is moving closer to the suns gravity and speeds up
I have posted this question on other forums. I get all kinds of answers except what I asked for
I want to write the two above sentences with true values. (The earth takes 4388 hours ......)
does anybody know?
