Planetary Opposition: Can You Solve It?Classical Mechanics Level pending
Note that the picture above is to only to serve as an example of what an opposition looks like; a given answer may appear to contradict certain elements in the picture. This does not necessarily mean that an answer is incorrect.
Details and Assumptions:
- The planets' gravitational fields will not interfere with each other
- An opposition is when two planets are aligned, sharing the same angle.
Hint: convert speeds to kilometers per year.
