Expert Answer:


1.The planets move round the sun in elliptical orbits with sun at one focus of the ellipse.

2. The radius vector from the planet to the sun sweeps out equal areas in equal intervals of time.

3. The ratio of T2/ r3 = constant , where T is the period of the planet's orbit around the sun and r is the semi- major axes of the ellipse.
