Let's say our solar system enters to gravitational area of a larger solar system. Does Earth's orbit of sun get affected from this case?

It depends on the mass of the larger solar system and the distance of Earth from it. F=GMm/r^2 G: Universal gravitational constant M: Mass of the sun or the other solar system m:Mass of Earth r:Distance from the source of gravitational field If F exerted by the other solar system is stronger by that exerted by the sun,Earths orbit will be affected.
