Gravity Section 1-2
Gravity Force that attracts all objects towards each otherMeasured in Newtons Causes objects to fall towards Earth Strength depends on the mass of the objects and the distance between them
Mass As mass increases, the force of gravity increases.Earth has a strong gravitational pull on us and on the moon because it is so much bigger.
Mass vs. Weight Mass is the amount of matter in an object; does not change with location. Weight is the force of gravity on an object; can change with location
Why do we weigh less on the moon?We would weigh 1/6 of our weight if we were on the moon. Reason: Moon is smaller than Earth so it has less of a gravitational pull on us.
Distance As the distance between each object increases, the force of gravity decreases. Ex: Mars has less of a gravitational pull on our moon than Earth does because it is further away.
How does the moon stay in orbit around Earth?Because of gravity and inertia! Gravity pulls the moon towards Earth and inertia keeps it moving ahead.
Gravity and Space Objectives To understand ……
Gravity and Inertia.
Chapter 15 S2 Gravity and Motion. Ch15 S2 Essential Questions 1.What determines the strength of the force of gravity between two objects? 2. What two.
Gravity. We know that planets travel around the Sun. Earth travels around the sun every 365 ¼ days. But what keeps the planets in this constant motion.
Weight and Gravitational Force
The Force of Gravity. May the Force be with you..
Gravity and Motion Section 2: Pages
KEY CONCEPTS WHAT DETERMINES THE STRENGTH OF THE FORCE OF GRAVITY BETWEEN TWO OBJECTS? WHAT TWO FACTORS COMBINE TO KEEP THE MOON AND EARTH IN ORBIT? Gravity.
Gravity and Motion Chapter 19 section 2. Isaac Newton realized that there must be a force acting between Earth and the moon that kept the moon in orbit.
GRAVITY What goes up, must come down??. Gravity Is it possible for some basketball players to “hang” in the air during a dunk? Give your opinion
CH 12 SEC 2 GRAVITY AND MOTION. GOAL/PURPOSE TO UNDERSTAND THE ROLE GRAVITY PLAYS ON THE PLANETS, STARS AND THE SOLAR SYSTEM TO UNDERSTAND THE ROLE GRAVITY.
Gravity The force of attraction between objects that is due to their masses.
Different kinds of Forces -Gravitational Force. ISAAC NEWTON.
Chapter 2 Measuring and Calculating. Chapter 2 Measuring and Calculating MASS and WEIGHT Commonly misunderstood quantities So take the time to learn.
Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation

Gravity: A Force of Attraction
GRAVITY Gravity Gravity is a force that for us is always directed downwards. But to say that gravity acts downwards is not correct. Gravity acts down,
