Define orbital period.


It is defined as the time it takes to complete one full orbit around a celestial body and it also depends on the altitude of the satellite Kepler's third law relates the period and the radius of objects in orbit around a star or planet. In conjunction with Newton's law of universal gravitation, giving the attractive force between two masses, we can find the speed and period of an artificial satellite in orbit around the Earth.
