Given:

Radius of Moon's Orbit around Earth

Radius of Earth's Orbit around Sun

Mass of Earth

Mass of Sun

I am trying to figure out the first part.

I know that the coriolis acceleration is going to be zero when the moon is furthest from the Sun because the velocity of the moon is parallel to the angular frequency of the trajectory of the Earth Moon system around the sun.

I already derived that the centrifugal acceleration that the moon experiences by the Earth is

T being the period of the moon around the Earth So would the total centrifugal acceleration that the Moon experiences be the :

Centrifugal Acceleration of the moon by Earth + Centrifugal Acceleration of the moon by Sun?

So

P being the period of the Earth moon system around the sun

Thanks
