### Is pushing a grocery cart an example of gravitational force?

No. Gravitational force is the attractive force that objects of
mass have on other matter (including light). Pushing a grocery cart
is an example of force, just not a gravitational force. Now,
dropping a grocery cart would be an example of gravitational force,
since it is the Earth's mass that is attracting it towards the
ground.

### Explain how the gravitational force between objects changes when the distance?

The gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square
of the distance. For example, if you increase the distance by a
factor of 10, the force will decrease by a factor of 100 (10
squared).

### Does distance important on gravitational strength field?

Yes. The gravitational force is inversely proportional to the
square of the distance; meaning, for example, that if you increase
the distance by a factor of 10, the force will be reduced by a
factor 100.

###### Asked in Planetary Science

### How does the mass of a planet affect the gravitational force of the planet?

In general, the more mass a planet has, the greater the
gravitational force of the planet will be. Jupiter has a lot of
mass, for example, so it has a big gravitational force. The
gravitational force also depends on the distance from the center of
the planet. Saturn for example, is over 90 times more massive than
Earth, but it has a bigger radius. Its "surface" (if it had one;
it's a gas giant) is much farther from its center, so the
gravitational force at the "surface" of Saturn is fairly close to
the gravitational force at the surface of Earth.
