##### Reference no: EM13337061

An Astronomer is in a spaceship that is orbiting around a planet with a period of 34 hours. The spaceship is a distance of 3 x 107 m away from the planet's center. What is the mass of the planet? How far from the planet would a moon have to orbit to have the same period (28 days) as our moon?
