how the moons stay in orbit around jupiter ?

  • physics - ,

    The same way our moon stays in orbit. Gravitational pull of the planet keeps bending the path of the moon into a near-circular orbit. The gravitational attraction force is strong enough to keep the moon in orbit, but not strong enough to make it spiral into the planet.

    The same physics keeps the Earth in a stable orbit about the Sun.
