F=GM1M2/R2

dF=GM1dM2/R2

You will find that this is a linear relationship between F and M2.

The slope of the line is GM1/R2 the y intercept is 0

mass

### Does the mass of an object change as the distance of gravity changes?

No, the measured weight of an object WILL change but the mass of an object will never change regardless of the gravitational force on object.

### What does the mass of an object change?

If the mass changes then the amount of material in the object changes. This will also affect the moment of inertia and the gravitational effect of the object.

### Is the weight of an object gravitational force of an object?

Weight is gravitational force on an objects Mass. Mass don't change when gravity changes but the weight does.

### Is weight measured of the gravitational force on an object?

Weight is gravitational force on an objects Mass. Mass don't change when gravity changes but the weight does.

### What is similar between inertial mass and gravitational mass?

Inertial mass is a quantitative measure of an object's resistance to the change of its speed. Gravitational mass is the property of the mass of an object that produces a gravitational field in the space surrounding the object.

### What object changes mass of an object when the pull of gravity changes?

The mass of an object doesn't depend on the gravitational force on the object.

### What object changes mass of an object?

If the mass changes then the amount of material in the object changes. This will also affect the moment of inertia and the gravitational effect of the object.

### What changes the mass of an object?

If the mass changes then the amount of material in the object changes. This will also affect the moment of inertia and the gravitational effect of the object.

### Why when you push an object across a desk is the work done not equal to the change in gravitational potential energy?

The gravitational potential energy does not change if the desk is horizontal. The work done is in overcoming the friction between the object and the desk.

### How does an object change with gravity?

An object with mass will be accelerated by a gravitational force.If the object were (relatively) stationary, but the gravitational force changed, then the apparent weight would change.

### Is mass and weight changes with change of place?

Weight changes depending on the gravitational pull exerted on an object, i.e. if it is on the Earth or if it is on the moon. Mass, however, remains constant.
