Description: Planets move around the Sun in elliptical orbits. Kepler was the first person to show this.

Causes: Planets have inertia which would cause them to move in straight lines

unless acted on by a force.

There is a force acting on the planets. It's the force of gravity between the planets and the Sun.

Isaac newton showed how gravitation can produce the observed elliptical orbits.

What evidence do you have that the planets move in elliptical orbits around the sun and not in circular orbits?

Elliptical orbits of the planets around the sun actually match what we observe. Newton's Theory of Universal Gravitation states that planets will move around the sun in elliptical orbits.


What diriction do planets orbit around the sun?

That depends from what direction you look.As seen from the north - the way it is usually depicted - all planets move clockwise around the Sun.Of course, if you observe from the south, the planets would move counterclockwise around the Sun.

Why does the planets orbit the sun then vise-versa?

The planets and the Sun move around the center of mass of the Solar System.
