Leda 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 69,679,979.34 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 12,991,594 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 10,940,279,561,609,500 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 14 September 1974 by Charles T. Kowal.
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 11,165,000 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The mass of the object is calculated at being 10,940,279,561,609,500 kg. The equatorial circumference of Leda is 62.8 km. The mean radius of Leda is 10.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Leda is 1,256.64 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.007 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 12,051.0 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Leda orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 27.457 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1636, it is the degree at which Leda orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
