## Do the Sun and earth pull on each other equally?

The gravitational constant is 6.67 x 10^-11 meter^3 / (kilogram – second^2). So the Earth and sun pull on each other with a force equal to 3.52 x 10^22 newtons.

## Do the Earth and moon attract each other equally?

Answer: The Earth and the moon experience equal gravitational forces from each other.

## How does the Earth attract to the Sun?

Gravity is caused by mass, so objects with more mass, such as planets and stars, exert a lot of gravity. The earth and everything on it is constantly falling towards the sun because of the sun’s immense gravity.

## Do you attract the Earth or the Earth attracts you which one is attracting with a larger force?

And yes, in the classical view, you attract the Earth with the same force as the Earth attracts you. While your gravity is very weak, the mass of the Earth attracted by it is enormous.

## Does the sun attract the Earth?

The Earth is indeed attracted to the SUN. IF WE COULD STOP THE EARTH’S motion and then let go, indeed the earth WOULD accelerate and fall into the sun! The reason why it does not is because of Newton’s first law of motion.

## Will the attraction between the moon and the sun be greater than less than or equal to the attraction that the Sun and Earth exert on each other?

The effect of distance on tidal forces is seen in the relationship between the sun, the moon, and the Earth’s waters. Our sun is 27 million times larger than our moon. Based on its mass, the sun’s gravitational attraction to the Earth is more than 177 times greater than that of the moon to the Earth.

## Which is the same both on the moon & Earth?

Our mass is same on both the moon and the earth​

## Does Earth attract moon?

Yes, with the same force the Earth attracts the Moon.
