Kiviuq is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 70,588,248.86 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 13,168,383 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 3,297,070,552,813,820 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 2,145 km3.
Kiviuq was discovered on 7 August 2000 by Brett J. Gladman, John J. Kavelaars, Jean-Marc Petit, Hans Scholl, Matthew J. Holman, Brian G. Marsd.
The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 449.22 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 11,311,100 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The equatorial circumference of Kiviuq is 50.3 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of Kiviuq is 8 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Kiviuq is 804.25 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.003 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 6,548.6 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Kiviuq orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 48.525 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1642, it is the degree at which Kiviuq orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
