Trinculo, Moon of Uranus

Trinculo is a Moon that orbits round Uranus rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 52,790,725.03 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 10,371,241 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 4,645,872,142,601,300 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.5 g/cm3. It was discovered on 13 August 2001 by Matthew Holman, John J. Kavelaars and Dan Milisavljevic.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 8,505,200 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 4,645,872,142,601,300 kg. The equatorial circumference of Trinculo is 56.5 km. The mean radius of Trinculo is 9.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Trinculo is 1,017.88 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.004 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 2,935.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Trinculo orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 166.971 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2194, it is the degree at which Trinculo orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
