Does Earth Do Work On The Moon ? Moon revolves around earth in nearly circular orbit, kept there by the attractive force exerted by earth. Does Earth do +,0,- work ? Gravitational force F on moon acts towards earth (centripetal force) inward along radius of moon's orbit Moon's displacement s always along a circle & F W=F.s G G G G G earth moon and artificial satellites can stay in orbit without expenditure of f . This is why , since no work is done against g W= ra ue y 0 l vit
