The mechanism of comet formation


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

The mechanism of comet formation. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet

A comet is born when a planet's satellite breaks out of orbit during the new moon phase.
If the orbital speed of the satellite is higher than the orbital speed of the planet, then the comet begins to move around the Sun in a retrograde orbit. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halley%27s_Comet
The eccentricity of a comet's orbit can be calculated using the following formula.
E = Vp/Vk
Jupiter's orbital speed is 12 km/sec.
The orbital speed of the Io satellite is 17 km/sec.
