Belinda, Moon of Uranus

Belinda is a Moon that orbits round the planet Uranus. It is also know by other designations, UXIV, S/1986 U5. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 356,683,087,077,132,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.3. Its volume is 274160.

Belinda was discovered on 13 January 1986 by Voyager Science Team.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Uranus is 0.62353 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 40km. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The Escape Velocity of the object is 124 km/h. The Escape Velocity is the speed an object needs to be travelling in order to break free from the objects gravity. The larger an object is, the more velocity (speed) is needed to break free from the object.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 75.3, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Belinda is 253.2 km. The surface area of Belinda is 20,408.92. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.015. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 31592.10 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 75300.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Belinda orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.03 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0001, it is the degree at which Belinda orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
