The exploration of the disturbance of the gravitational field is an absorbing topic in physics. It might provide insight into the theory of gravitation. How is the disturbance of the gravitational field generated? What is the equation of the disturbed field? What is the relationship between the disturbance of the gravitational field due to Earth and the motion of the Moon? These problems are addressed in this paper.
Keywords: vector, disturbance, disturbed field, tangential acceleration, equation of disturbed field, disturbed force, work done, polarization, ellipse, secular acceleration of the Moon
