How the orbit of the planets is dictated by mass and the force of gravity.
- The curved path of one object around another is its orbit.
- Objects orbit due to the effects of gravity.
- The gravitation pull between two objects depends on their mass and distance.
- As the Sun is the largest object in our Solar System, all the planets orbit around it.
The Moon goes around the Earth. The Earth goes around the Sun.
This curved path of one object around another is an orbit.
Orbits are all about gravity.
As Isaac Newton discovered, gravity is the attractive force that exists between every object in the universe.
It makes apples fall to the ground.
And it binds ...
