Hey Marcel. So I was in school learning about gravity. But there's one thing I don't get, how does gravity affects objects on Earth?
Hmm? How does gravity affects object on Earth? I'll teach you a little lesson.
Every object in the universe that has mass apply a gravitational pull, or force, on every other mass, like an apple falling off a tree.
The Sun's gravitational pull keeps our planet orbiting the Sun. The motion of the Moon is affected by the gravity of the Sun AND the Earth. The Moon's gravity pulls on the Earth and makes the tides rise and fall every day.
Earth's gravitational force accelerates objects when they fall. It constantly pulls, and the objects constantly speed up.
The force of gravity the masses exert on each other. If one of the masses is doubled, the force of gravity between the objects is doubled. increases, the force of gravity decreases.
No problem Maggie!
Thanks Marcel! I understand way better now on how gravirty functions.
