Kepler and Pluto
MTHSC 108H -- December 11, 1999
From the textbook, p. 695, the orbit of Pluto has a semi-major axis of
km and an eccentricity of 0.2481.
According to my HP48GX one astronomical unit is equal to km. Thus the book and the diagrom on
the handout agree. The diagram from the handout is reproduced below.
