One of the four fundamental interactions, gravity is responsible for the fact that any objects with mass attract one another. According to general relativity, it is a space time curvature, but according to quantum mechanics it is the result of exchanges of virtual gravitons.
Pluto's mass is only about 1/455th of Earth's and its gravity would be 1/15th. Earth-type plants could grow immensely tall. Insects and animals could run faster and jump farther. However, the incredibly frigid temperature on Pluto (only 30 to 50°C above absolute zero) makes native lifeforms unlike…

Answer In the real world, the word 'weight' is commonly wrongly used interchangably with 'mass' as both are measured in kilograms. The formula is Force (weight in this case) = Mass x Acceleration. Force is measured in Newtons (N). Mass - the amount of substance - is measured in Kilograms (Kg) an…

Answer Simply put, no. If something stretches, it keeps the same mass (which is what creates a gravitational pull). For example, take a rubber band and weight it. Stretch it out and weight it again. It still weighs the same amount. Now, if you're talking about the gravitational pull on Earth... .…

Yes! Gravity is a force that attracts everything in the Universe to everything else. The force of gravity between two objects is stronger the more massive the objects are and the closer they are to each other. That's why we only feel Earth's gravity pulling us down - because the Earth is so massive,…
