Mukta asked:

“imagine a planetary system in which gravitational force varied as 1/r instead of 1/r^{2} .what relation would correspond to KEPLER’S THIRD LAW (SQUARE OF TIME PERIOD / CUBE OF SEMI MAJOR AXIS.?”

**(Answer)**

If the gravitational force varied as 1/r instead of 1/r^{2} , then Kepler’s Law of periods would have to be modified accordingly and it would give T proportional to r.
