As Hritik said, it's generally better to ask one quesiton at a time, and it's also a good idea to do a little reseach yourself. Most of these questions are researchable, but they're also pretty straight forward, so I'll give it a shot. First what if anything could cause the orbit of the Earth to start to diminish start to go towards the Sun closer on ...

The Earth, actually, is moving away from the sun at a very slow rate. The tidal forces between the Earth-Sun pair slowly transfers the Sun's rotational energy to the Earth, and this causes the Earth to move further and further away. (albeit this happens almost unnoticeably slowly.) The Earth moon system is the most well known case when it comes to tidal ...

Earth is in equilibrium in the space ( both rotational and translational) . The net ext force on earth is zero and hence torques too. Hence under any circumstance earth cannot deviate from its original path. It will continue to be moving as it was moving. There are many other theories which can lead to the decline of earth ( like black hole one) but nothing ...

Pluto and Charon orbit around their common center of mass. And their common center of mass orbits around the sun, following an elliptical trajectory. Analogously, the Earth and the Moon orbit around their common center of mass, and their common center of mass orbits around the sun. All of this is well described by Newtonian gravitation. The only ...

Rigid bodies with three distinct moments of inertia have two stable rotation axes, the axes with the greatest and least moments of inertia (typically the shortest and longest axes). Non-rigid bodies have but one stable rotation axis, the axis with the greatest moment of inertia. The axis with the least moment of inertia becomes unstable thanks to entropy. ...
