Moreover, Newton clearly substantiated the heliocentric model through his Universal Law of Gravity: Earth would remain in a straight, uniform path through the universe, however, the sun exerts a constant force which bends Earth’s path towards the sun, causing orbit (see figure 7) [17]. Using Newton’s theoretical Law of Gravitation and the observed acceleration of circular motion, the heliocentric model can be confirmed. Graph 1 compares the Sun’s gravitational acceleration at Earth (a= Gm/r^2 ) to Earth’s actual acceleration based on its observed motion (a= v^2/r); the graph clearly illustrates the approximate equivalence of the two values....   [tags: astronomy, history]
