I understand orbit and why the moon doesn't collide with the earth, but why doesn't the earth collide with the moon? Shouldn't the mutual gravitational forces attract each other, get stronger, until they eventually meet?
Well, frankly it was kind of inaccurate.this is what i acctually wanted to say as the main reason why both don't collide.this is the wobbling effect i was talkin' abt..
In fact, when the Moon makes its closest approach to the Earth, the Earth is likewise making its closest approach to the Moon. It's not like it "wobbles" out of the way.they wobble in a way in which when the moon approches earth by the nearest distance,the earth wobbles and hence kepps it away from the moon.
Mikey said it.ah,dave can you please explain elaborately,in which part i'm wrong.this will also help me!!!
