Center of Mass

Center of Mass

The animations in the link shows how the barycenter shifts depending on the relative masses of the orbiting bodies (Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barycenter)

Originally shared by Tom Eigelsbach

The barycenter is the point in space around which two objects orbit. For the Moon and Earth, that point is about 1000 miles (1700 km) beneath your feet, or about three-quarters of the way from the Earth’s center to its surface. That means the Earth actually wobbles around a point deep in its interior, pulled around by the Moon.

  1. Mike Garcia You’re right, it wouldn’t work like that.  This is just a 2D graphic to try to explain what a barycenter is, and that it works something like a balance.   It’s a metaphorical picture, and even then it doesn’t quite fit.  Sometimes explaining concepts, especially when you have to resort to pictures, has to be like Winston Churchill described Democracy, “The worst, except for all the rest.”

  2. I can’t help but wonder if this has any bearing on the earth’s livability.   You might argue not, but I would say “PMS” back.  We really are quite dependent on the month as a unit of time, biologically and otherwise.

  3. A thought I have alway had is could our moon be a part of or even the major reason earth still has a magnetic shield protecting it. I have heard that on the inner rocky planets volcanism is basically dead except for earth, that had puzzled me because of how close in mass both Earth and Venus. Then I had read about volcanism in planets beyond Mars was considered basically impossible because those planets were Gas Giants until they started at the moons orbiting those planets and too there amazement there were several moon that we’re extremely volcanically active and the theory of how could these moon still had some form of a liquid core was due to the gravitational tugging on the moon and that caused enough friction to keep them volcanically active. So I was wondering after this long explanation could that be our blessing in that our moon has tugged on our Earth in a way as not to necessarily be melting the rock under our feet including that iron core that is giving us the magnetic shield that keep our atmosphere from being wicked of into space from the solar winds because the title forces are just enough to keep what was molten still molten?

  4. I guess I wasn’t just talking about the moon, but the asymmetrical “wobble” it gives the earth.


    A second thought, I wonder if this will interact with rising water levels or the change in the composition (weight) of the atmosphere.
