Maths of planet radius
« on: July 31, 2017, 08:07:50 PM »
Hello everyone, I'm new here.

I'm curious what equations are used to determine the radius of a planet in US2, particularly gas giants (but I also want to know about rocky planets). I've had trouble finding such equations on the internet. Obviously mass is a parameter, but the rest I'm unsure of. Is a model of hydrostatic equilibrium used?

Thanks, everyone!
