Calculate the magnitudes of the gravitational forces exerted on the Moon by the Sun and by the Eart when the two forces are in direct competition, that is, when the Sun, Moon and Eart are aligned with the Moon between the Sun and the Earth. This alignment corresponds to a solar eclipse.) Does the orbit of the Moon ever actually curve away from the Sun, toward the Earth? (Please give your answer to three significant figures.)
