By using Kepler`s 3rd law we get that T2^2/T1^2 = r2^3/r1^3 Substituting T1= 365 , r2= 2r1 We get 2.828 Ans:- It will take 2.828 years if the distance is doubled

Dear student,
Please find the answer to your question.
 
By using Kepler`s 3rd law we get that T22/T12 = r23/r13
Substituting T1= 365.25  , r2= 2r1
Hence, T2 = (365.252 x 8) = 1033.08 days
Hence, option (a) 1032 days is correct.
 
Thanks and regards,
Kushagra
