In the conventional inverse square scheme, The Moon is exceptionally large relative to the Earth, being a quarter the diameter of the planet. and the Earth and Moon are still commonly considered a planet-satellite system instead of double planet

According to  Planet hypothesis of the moon, moon is planet and the mass known as earth,s is moon's

\rho_m =  247.6

From Angular mometum conservation,

I_m \omega_m sin \theta_m = I_e  \omega_e sin \theta_e

If we assume equivalent density for moon and earth,

R_m/R_e =2.626.

then d_{me} = 0.38M* 2.626/0.273 =3.656 Giga Meter

If we assume existent distance and size for moon and earth, and high density for moon,

R_m/R_e =0.275.
d_{me}=0.385 Giga Meter

\rho_m/\rho_e  = (r_e/r_m)^5 \omega_e sin \theta_e /\omega_m /sin \theta_m 

which seems wrong values.

New size and distanceEdit

From angular momentun conservation, tht size and distance are 9.549 times larger than those of conventional solar system.

In the inverse square scheme, density of moon becomes 245.3 ton/m^3

In the inverse biquadrate scheme, M_m =  (d_{me})^5 (\omega_{me})^2 / G'' Thus Gravitational mass density of moon is 228.4 ton/m^3

Surface gravityEdit

Gravitational accelerations on the suface of large planet such as Jupiter and Saturn are so small that Large planets have rings.

Moon also is large and gravitational acceleration on the surface is g/6 (0.1654g =1.622<math>m/s^3</math>) due to inverse biquadrate gravity.

Conventional density profileEdit
