The hill you are talking about is the gravitational pull of our galaxy, the milky way. In a simplified picture you would see a tow pulling the moving
sun closer to the center of the milky way. In an even larger picture you would see that the milky way itself is pulled by another, bigger tow towards
the gravitational center of the virgo cluster, and I really don't know if anyone found another bigger player in this all..
Mass pulls at mass. The larger and nearer, the more powerful.
Ok now I'm thinking about rotational velocity which must be different than our velocity. Since being on the outer rim of the galaxy we travel more
distance around the center than someplace nearer the center.
I couldn't get to sleep but I got a crazy idea. Since they say the universe is expanding, could that mean that we are unraveling? Like the center of
the milky way is a wet dog shaking its head exept in one direction, and the water are the arms spiraling away from the center. Do you understand?
I know you will mention red shift and blue shift but can we really tell is we are speeding to the center or unraveling from the center?
ETA: Ok looked up relationship of v = Δd / Δt, w = ΔѲ / Δt and v = rw BUT arc length is s = rѲ... isn't Δd = rΔѲ? (r is a constant). It all
cancels out 1=1, help!
edit on 27-6-2013 by Emeraldous because: ETA arc length and etc
ETA2: If not, then this means that there is a change in radius at CONSTANT speed but +/-? ( Δd = Δr ΔѲ )
and the equation resolves to r = Δr

ETA3: Unless.. lol sorry. Unless there is a double derivative in time (velocity eq.) meaning acceleration leaving r = Δr / Δt
