P2_5 Jovian Gravitational Perturbations on Earth's Orbit

Soheb Mandhai, Ben S. G. Harris, Zoe Harrison, Tomas Holesinsky


In a hypothetical situations in which the solar system contains varied masses of Jupiter, the orbit of the Earth may fall subject to considerable gravitational perturbations. With the aid of the Newtonian gravity simulator, Universe SandboxTM, the effects of these perturbations can be observed .The orbit is found alter by an approximate 30x106 km before being ejected from the solar system, at Jovian mass of 0.7 Mʘ.
