Trinculo, Moon of Uranus

Trinculo is a Moon that orbits round the planet Uranus. It is also know by other designations, UXXI, S/2001 U1. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 4,645,872,142,601,300 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.5. Its volume is 3054.

Trinculo was discovered on 13 August 2001 by Matthew Holman, John J. Kavelaars and Dan Milisavljevic.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Uranus is 758.1 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 9km. The Equatorial Radius is based on the assumption of the Albedo value. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The albedo of the object is 0.04. The Albedo is the amount of radiation that is reflected back into space by the object.

The Escape Velocity of the object is 30 km/h. The Escape Velocity is the speed an object needs to be travelling in order to break free from the objects gravity. The larger an object is, the more velocity (speed) is needed to break free from the object.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 8504, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Trinculo is 56.5 km. The surface area of Trinculo is 1,017.88. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.004. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 2935.20 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 8505200.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Trinculo orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 166.93 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.
