Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If we were to change the Earth's orbit, what force should we apply and in what direction? Shoud we go against G.(M_Earth + M_Sun) / distance^2 or against the centripetal force, M_Earth.v^2/distance?

I've calculated this last one and I got the result:

3,542396634E+22 Newtons

Is this correct?

Regards,

Kepler
