What will happen to the earth, if the sun stops to attract the earth?

Asked by Topperlearning User 4th June 2014, 1:23 PM

Answer:
The force of gravitation between the earth and the sun keeps the earth in its orbit around the sun.  If the sun does not attract the earth, it will start  moving in a straight line tangent to the circular path at the point where the sun's force of attraction ceases.
