View Answer
The gravity of the sun has a more significant effect on it than earth.
To determine the relationship of the sun’s gravity and gravity of the object orbits, a concept called tug of war is used. Earth is the only planet-moon system where the gravity of the sun is stronger than the primary body. This is the reason why the moon moves away from us at the rate of an inch a year.
