### What are examples of gravitational force?

One good example are the fact that when you stand up, there is a force ... known as your "weight" ... that holds you down to the floor. That force is nothing but the force of mutual gravitational attraction between you and the earth.

### How do you measure the downward force of an apple exerts?

You can put it on a scale. There's usually one available somewhere near the apples in any produce market, for that exact purpose. The downward force exerted by the apple is referred to as the apple's "weight". It's the magnitude of the gravitational attraction between the mass of the earth and the mass of the apple.

chemical energy

### How did watching an apple fall from a tree lead newton to his hypothesis about gravity?

The falling apple helped Newton to understand the law of gravitational attraction between masses. The apple did not fall up, it did not fall sideways, it fell toward the earth. Newton could see a universal law in the fall of the local apple. The fall of the apple confirmed his ideas of why the earth orbited around the sun, etc.
