Description

Kepler's second law - that an imaginary line from the sun to a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal times - applies to the shape of galaxies, the vortices of hurricanes and firestorms, even the water gurgling down the bathtub plughole. At the centre of this swirling motion is the law of the conservation of angular momentum. This program clearly describes how Kepler's second law of planetary motion applies to angular momentum, by showing it to be a cross product of the radius vector and momentum. With a look at circular motion, vortex and disc, Tycho Brahe and of course Johannes Kepler, giant of the Reformation period, this is a clear and concise examination of this crucial area of physics.
