Suppose gravity of earth suddenly becomes zero, then in which direction will the moon begin to move if no other celestial body affects it?
Gravity of earth provides necessary centripetal force to the moon to move in a circular path around the earth. If gravity becomes zero, there is no centripetal force and hence, the moon will begin to move in a straight line along to the tangent at the point on the circular path due to inertia of direction.
