# why does moon revolve around the earth

Hi! Devika

The Moon’s distance from the Earth is such that the gravitational force of attraction doesn’t let it go away and it just balances the centripetal force of rotational motion, so it does not fall on Earth either.
In this manner it rotates around the Earth in an orbit. The same applies to the Earth, with an orbital speed that keeps it at a relatively constant distance from the Sun.
You’ll get to know about some of these concepts in higher grades.

Hope this is clear to you.

Cheers!!

In fact, both the Earth and the Moon are moving in a straight line!? But since the Moon follows the geodesic of the warp of spacetime around the Earth, it orbits the Earth just as the Earth orbits the Sun and our Solar System, as a whole, orbits the centre of our galaxy, The Milky Way.? Gravity is just the warp of spacetime near any mass in space and is not a physical force like a centripetal force although it appears to be so.? Therefore we are travelling with the Moon in the straight line of spacetime

The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still.

The path of the Earth–Moon system in its solar orbit is defined as the movement of this mutual centre of gravity around the sun. Consequently, Earth's centre veers inside and outside the solar orbital path during each synodic month as the Moon moves in its orbit around the common centre of gravity.
