 LAWS OF MOTION - LoveToKnow Article on LAWS OF MOTION
Kepler (1571-1630) was led by his study of the planetary motions to reject this method of statement as inadequate, and it is in fact incapable of giving a complete representation of the motions in question.
As a law of acceleration of the planets relatively to the sun, its approximate agreement with Keplers third law of planetary motion follows readily from a consideration of the character of the acceleration of a point moving uniformly in a circle.

As an example of using Kepler's 3rd Law, let's calculate the "radius" of the orbit of Mars (that is, the length of the semimajor axis of the orbit) from the orbital period.

Kepler remained in Graz until 1600, when all Protestants were forced to convert to Catholicism or leave the province, as part of Counter Reformation measures.
Kepler's position in Linz now became progressively worse, as Counter Reformation measures put pressure on Protestants in the Upper Austria province of which Linz was the capital.
In 1594 Kepler accepted an appointment as professor of mathematics at the Protestant seminary in Graz (in the Austrian province of Styria).

Keplers ineradicable belief in I existence of some such congruity was derived from the thagorean idea of an underlying harmony in nature; but his luous efforts for its realization took a devious and fantastic irse which seemed to give little promise of their surprising imate success.

 Prehistory 2
Keplers three laws of planetary motion predicted correctly the motions of the planets; far from the ideal, spherical, and changeless universe adamantly prescribed to in the past, the new system was pragmatic, simple and predictable, with elliptical planetary orbits that varied in speed and distance.
He invented the laws of motion and gravity, created the exceptional new reflecting telescope, and formulated the mathematical principles of calculus, effectively combining the most nebulous aspects of the renaissance scientists’ discoveries into one all encompassing set of natural laws.
Keplers’ essential work sparked a flurry of other literary works on the subject by little known authors such as Francis Godwin and John Wilkins, as well as famed littérateurs such as Cyrano DeBergerac and Daniel DeFoe (Emme, 36).

 Keplers Laws
The first of Kepler's laws is that the orbit of each planet is elliptical.
This can be expressed by the equation of a "planets orbital period squared equals its mean solar distance cubed."* Kepler's laws really helped support the heliocentric theory, although Kepler did not determine the forces that produced the planetary motion.
Kepler's third law states that the orbital period of a planet is proportional to its distance to the sun.

 Kepler's Three Laws of Planetary Motion
Kepler's laws apply not just to planets orbiting the sun, but to all cases in which one celestial body orbits another under the influence of gravitation -- moons orbiting planets, artificial satellites orbiting the earth and other solar system bodies, and stars orbiting each other.
Law III: The squares of the planets' orbital periods are proportional to the cubes of the semimajor axes of their orbits.
In the 16th century, the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus replaced the traditional earth-centered view of planetary motion with one in which the sun is at the center and the planets move around it in circles.

 Kepler's laws of planetary motion: Encyclopedia topic
Kepler did not understand why his laws were correct; it was Isaac Newton (Isaac Newton: English mathematician and physicist; remembered for developing the calculus and for his law of gravitation and his three laws of motion (1642-1727)) who discovered the answer to this more than fifty years later.
Kepler's third law (1618): The square (square: A hand tool consisting of two straight arms at right angles; used to construct or test right angles) of the sidereal period (sidereal period: the orbital period is the time it takes a planet (or another object) to make one full...
Newton would modify this third law, noting that the period is also affected by the orbiting body's mass (mass: The property of a body that causes it to have weight in a gravitational field), however typically the central body is so much more massive that the orbiting body's mass may be ignored.

A further discussion on the design options for cometaria is presented in On Ptolemy's Equant, Kepler's Second Law, and the Non-existent "Empty Focus" Cometarium published in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (99 (4), 120 - 123).
The details of the motion produced by elliptical pulleys is discussed in J. Millburn's article Demonstrating the Motion of Comets [Space Education, 1(2), 1981, 55-58] and in M. Beech's article The mechanics and origin of cometaria [Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage, 5(2), 2002, 155-163].
Since the motion of the comet about S is non-uniform (faster at perihelion and slower at aphelion), the uniform circular motion of crank N (as displayed in the upper circular dial) must be converted into non-uniform drive motion about S (through the pointer SYW).
