## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello All,

A curious person here would like to know if a planet gains gravitational force as it rotates around the center of its galaxy. From what I understand this speed is quite impressive (the speed at which we travel around the center of our galaxy) so I'm wondering if the sheer mass of our planet (or sun), traveling at that velocity, would have the effect of amplifying Earth's (or the suns) gravitational force.

Thanks in advance for any explanation!
