Most stars we see are actually two stars in orbit around each other. Technically, all orbiting systems are binary orbits, so understanding the basics of these is important in physics. Let's see how these work and get the basic concepts down, especially in terms of finding how fast things must be moving in order for these orbits (which we will assume are circular) form.
