Sinope, Moon of Jupiter

Sinope 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 148,044,303.08 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 29,911,781 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 74,933,421,654,859,700 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 21 July 1914 by Seth Barnes Nicholson.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,939,000 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 74,933,421,654,859,700 kg. The equatorial circumference of Sinope is 119.4 km. The mean radius of Sinope is 19.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Sinope is 4,536.46 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.014 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 8,128.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Sinope orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 158.109 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2495, it is the degree at which Sinope orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
