Mass-Radius Relationships for Solid Exoplanets

1 code implementation19 Jul 2007 S. Seager, M. Kuchner, C. Hier-Majumder, B. Militzer

We find that the mass-radius relationships for cold terrestrial-mass planets of all compositions we considered follow a generic functional form that is not a simple power law: $\log_{10} R_s = k_1 + 1/3 \log_{10}(M_s) - k_2 M_s^{k_3}$ for up to $M_p \approx 20 M_{\oplus}$, where $M_s$ and $R_s$ are scaled mass and radius values.
