The earth revolves round the sun because the sun attracts the earth. The sun also attracts the moon and this force is about twice as large as the attraction of the earth on the moon. Why does the moon not revolve round the sun ?
Each year, Physics Illinois recognizes student excellence at a special awards banquet. In 2015, the Thirty-Fifth Physics-on-the-Campus Luncheon was held at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center Ballroom on Thursday, April 30. Many of the awards are made possible through the generous support of our alumni.
