In this paper, we used Howusu’s planetary equation. The general equation of motion is derived for particle of non-zero rest mass in a gravitational field based upon Riemannian geometry and the golden metric tensor which is thereby opens the way for further studies or to pave the way for applications such as planetary theory.
