How to Calculate Radius of Sphere of Influence?
Radius of Sphere of Influence calculator uses Planet 2 radius = (Planet 1 radius/0.001)*(Planet 1 Mass/Planet 2 Mass)^(2/5) to calculate the Planet 2 radius, Radius of Sphere of Influence in astrodynamics and astronomy is the oblate-spheroid-shaped region around a celestial body where the primary gravitational influence on an orbiting object is that body. Planet 2 radius is denoted by R_{2} symbol.
How to calculate Radius of Sphere of Influence using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Radius of Sphere of Influence, enter Planet 1 radius (R_{1}), Planet 1 Mass (M_{1}) & Planet 2 Mass (M_{2}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Radius of Sphere of Influence calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.061E+8 = (14000000000/0.001)*(5E+24/1E+30)^(2/5).
