Paaliaq is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 87,080,192.85 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 23,139,965 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 8,242,676,382,034,560 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 5,575 km3.
Paaliaq was discovered on 7 August 2000 by Brett J. Gladman, John J. Kavelaars, Jean-Marc Petit, Hans Scholl, Matthew J. Holman, Brian G. Marsd. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 686.95 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 15,024,000 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 8,242,676,382,034,560 kg. The equatorial circumference of Paaliaq is 69.1 km. The mean radius of Paaliaq is 11.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Paaliaq is 1,520.53 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.005 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,277.3 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Paaliaq orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 41.77 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.5402, it is the degree at which Paaliaq orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
