Main Article Content
planets of the solar system are represented on the plane (J"2, w2 a?/MG)
(J2 = second term of the gravitational potential, w = rotation rate of the
planet, a — equatorial radius, M — mass of the planet, G = gravitational
constant). Since the points representing the planets lie on a straight line
it is possible to obtain informations on the giration moment and the moment
of inertia of Uranus and Pluto.
