S/2010 J2, Moon of Jupiter

S/2010 J2 is a Moon that orbits round the planet Jupiter. Its volume is 4.

S/2010 J2 was discovered on 8 September 2010 by C. Veillet.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Jupiter is 588.1 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 1km. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 20307, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2010 J2 is 6.3 km. The surface area of S/2010 J2 is 12.57. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 8823.00 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 20307150.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2010 J2 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 150.4 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.307, it is the degree at which S/2010 J2 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
