  3. On pg. 472, The Sun, Earth, and the Moon can be thought of as participating in a complex 3-body dance, as shown in Figure 11. Their movements are determined by gravitational forces.

    Slide 3 - On pg. 472, The Sun, Earth, and the Moon can be thought of as participating in a complex 3-body dance, as shown in Figure 11. Their movements are determined by gravitational forces.

  4. At the same time that the Moon orbits Earth, the Moon & Earth orbit the Sun together in an elliptical path. Both bodies rotate about their rotational axes as they move through space.

    Slide 5 - At the same time that the Moon orbits Earth, the Moon & Earth orbit the Sun together in an elliptical path. Both bodies rotate about their rotational axes as they move through space.

  5. Earth orbits the Sun in a path that is almost circular. The actual path is an ellipse, so the distance between Earth and the Sun is not constant. Earth is closest to the Sun in January and farthest away in July.

    Slide 6 - Earth orbits the Sun in a path that is almost circular. The actual path is an ellipse, so the distance between Earth and the Sun is not constant. Earth is closest to the Sun in January and farthest away in July.

  6. The difference between the closest and farthest approach to the Sun is about 5 million kilometers. According to Kepler’s law of planetary motion, Earth moves faster when it’s closer to the Sun and slower when it’s farther away from the Sun.

    Slide 7 - The difference between the closest and farthest approach to the Sun is about 5 million kilometers. According to Kepler’s law of planetary motion, Earth moves faster when it’s closer to the Sun and slower when it’s farther away from the Sun.

  7. On pg. 473. The gravitational force between Earth and the Sun causes Earth to revolve around the Sun. Earth also rotates about its axis as it revolves around the sun. This 24-hour rotation cycle gives rise our experience of day and night as one side of Earth turns away from the Sun to the darkness of space. Earth’s rotational axis is not perpendicular to the orbital plane, but is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees.

    Slide 8 - On pg. 473. The gravitational force between Earth and the Sun causes Earth to revolve around the Sun. Earth also rotates about its axis as it revolves around the sun. This 24-hour rotation cycle gives rise our experience of day and night as one side of Earth turns away from the Sun to the darkness of space. Earth’s rotational axis is not perpendicular to the orbital plane, but is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees.
