So I am working on a simulation of the solar system and ran into a
In reality, the speed of the moon compared to
the earth is much slower then that of the earth compared to the sun.
However, the moon completes its orbit much quicker because it has to
travel much less distance. The moon orbits the earth about 13 times in
In my simulation however, the moon gets maybe 2
orbits in a year...
I've checked the speed with wikipedia
and they are correct.
The only difference is that I scale
everything, making me suspect that that's the cause.
distances are devided by 100 000
