Solution :-

The earth attracts the moon with associate degree equal force with that the moon attracts the planet however these forces are in opposite directions. By universal law of gravitation, the force between moon and also the sun can be,

\( F=\frac{Gm_1m_2}{d^2}\)

Where,

d = distance between the earth and moon.

m1 m2 = masses of earth and moon respectively
