PHYSICS
Asked by Richard

How do the other planets in the solar system affect Earth?

Gravitional pull from other planets, along with the change in the Earths shape, over time, has caused changes in the climate on Earth. For example, the gravitational pull from other planets, can affect the Earths axil tilt and affect the way that the sunlights falls = climate change! Gravitational pull of each planet affects the spin and rotation of other planets, which in turn, affects how many hours in a day each planet experiences. Earth experiences 24hrs in a day because of its place in the solar system and rotational speed. Though not a planet, the fact that the Earth is orbiting the sun, is a key factor, in terms of gravitational pull. The sun keeps the earth in orbit. If it wasn’t for the sun, the Earth would eventually collide with another planet or object ☠️. The sun plays a huge role in the continuation of life on Earth.
