Orbital motion occurs whenever an object is moving forward and at the same time is pulled by gravity toward another object. The forward velocity of the object combines with acceleration due to gravity toward the other object. In this episode, students learn how to solve problems involving gravity and orbital motion. Part of the "Physics 101" series.
