Ganymede is a Moon that orbits round Jupiter rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 6,725,518.71 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 1,071,792 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 148,185,846,875,052,000,000,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.942 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.942 g/cm3. It was discovered in the year 1610 by Galileo Galilei. Its takes 7.155 Earth days to do a full rotation period.
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 1,070,400 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The atmospheric gases within the atmosphere of the object are Oxygen.
The mass of the object is calculated at being 148,185,846,875,052,000,000,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Ganymede is 16,532.3 km. The mean radius of Ganymede is 2,631.2 km. The surface area of Ganymede is 86,999,665.93 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 1.428 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 39,165.6 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Ganymede orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.177 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0013, it is the degree at which Ganymede orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
