Radial velocity semi-amplitude of the host star in a star-planet system is affected by four parameters: the orbital period and mass of the planet, mass of the host star, and orbital eccentricity. Statistical distribution of the orbital elements was examined using sensitive data from the spectroscopic orbital solutions of 737 systems given in the Exoplanet Orbit Database and Exoplanet Data Explorer ( The orbital element distribution of the exoplanets was plotted in separate diagrams to highlight the basic features of the host star and planet in star-planet systems.
