1 Do Now In your notebook, answer the following question in complete sentences: What is the difference between mass and weight?

2 Mass vs. Weight Mass The amount of matter in an object Weight The force of gravity acting on an object The difference?? GRAVITY

3 What forces act upon celestial bodies? Gravity

4 Objectives Define the term gravity. Compare and contrast mass and weight Describe the factors that affect gravity

5 What is Gravity? Gravity is the attractive force between two objects Gravitys magnitude depends on: Mass of objects involved Distance between objects

6 Newtons Law of Gravitation F = Gravitational Force G = Universal Gravitation Constant = 6.6726x10 -11 m 3 /(kgs 2 ) m 1 = mass of first object m 2 = mass of second object r = distance between centers of objects
