we know that an object fall towards the earth due to it's gravitational pull then why doesn't the moon fall towards the earth, why does it revolve around the earth and comes forward slowly why doesn't it fall to the earth directly?

Any two bodies in the universe, attracts each other due to gravitaional force.
According to law of gravitation, moon follows straight line path, gets attracted towards the earth at every pont along its path,
hence moon revolves around the earth, it dosen't fall towards earth.
The same thing happens in case with other planets.

- my doubt is the value of G is 60673multiply10-11power but why we use some no in some different numericals like use of 6.6, some times 6.7 why please ans this ques now 🙏
