What is the gravity of water?
The specific gravity for water is 1. However, when the temperature of water increases, the gravity gradually lowers. At 0°C (32°F), gravity is 1. At 100°C (212°F), the specific gravity of water is 0.958. At 300°C (approx. 580°F), it is 0.7.

Answer . Depends on the height. You gain approximately 0.4 psi for every foot of elevation; so at 10 foot elevation you will have ~4 psi.
The effect of gravity is what makes objects that are more dense (mass per unit of volume) than water, like rocks, sink to the bottom. Objects that have less density than water… will float because their bouyancy is stronger than the force of gravity.
It has to do with the law of buoyancy. Keep in mind that not all people are as buoyant as others and sink like rocks. See the related link for more information.
Yes. Water falls just like everything else with mass does. If gravity did not affect water, it would be difficult to pour.
how does the gravity free water stay inside the cup
Everything needs gravity, everything is affected by it :P
I suspect you mean the gravitational acceleration constant which is about 9.81 m/s^2. This value is actually only valid at Earth's surface (and it also varies from place to pl…ace). So in general the answer to your question is no. It might, but it won't be in general. The value is calculated by using Newton's Law of gravitation: F = G m1*m2 / r^2. Where F is the gravitational force, m1 is the mass of the Earth and m2 is the mass of an object. r is the distance from the object to the center of the Earth. Because r does not differ much, G is just a constant (called Newton's Gravitational Constant), and m1 also does not change much, we usually do the following: If we are interested in the acceleration an object experiences due to gravity we can use Newton's Second Law: F = m * a. If we take m as the mass of our object, and a its acceleration due to the gravitational force we must have: G m1 * m / r^2 = m * a If we cross out the m (or m2) on both sides we end up with: a = G m1 / r^2 This a is usually called g. It does not vary much in everyday life, but it does ultimately, so g varies with height.
That is how specific gravity is defined.
We have no clue
The reason why is because of air. Air is just made up of atoms and gravity works on holding down mass and air has no mass. Where water is a liquid and has mass so gravity hold…s it down. So when you jump in the water you have less mass then the water does so gravity does not work on you when in the water.
Because of gravity, anything with mass is attracted to everything else with mass.
Water seems to be related to gravity in the same way that paper is related to wind.
Water uses gravity to flow in streams, waterfalls,and rivers.
WATER can dissolve chalk and limestone, rock-salt and gypsum. It can hydrolyse other rock-forming minerals such as the feldspar in granite, although very slowly. Water in crac…ks may freeze, exerting tremendous lateral pressure that may crack a piece of rock off. Flowing water both transports broken rock particles and adds to the weathering by abrasion of rock against rock in the current or by wave action. In the partial melting of subducted ocean plates, the water in the wet sediment dragged down by the subduction acts as a flux to aid the melting. WIND does nothing itself to rocks, but may blow sand-grains against it to wear it down. GRAVITY alone does little beyond aiding erosion by drawing weathered-rock particles down from the parent rock.
