Mundilfari, Moon of Saturn

Mundilfari is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 116,050,449.86 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 22,496,686 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 209,813,580,633,607 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 180 km3.

It was discovered in the year 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 952.8 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 18,667,900 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Mundilfari is 22.0 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of Mundilfari is 3.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Mundilfari is 153.94 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.001 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,074.8 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Mundilfari orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 169.206 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2051, it is the degree at which Mundilfari orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
