All planets have gravity, and will attract other objects. The strength of the attraction is determined by the mass of the planet and the distance to the object.

Not only from the ocean. EVERY object in the Universe attracts EVERY OTHER OBJECT, through a force called gravity. So, the ocean attracts us, but so does every other part of planet Earth.

yes and no, planet earth is the only earth with gravity because there is only one earth, however planet earth is not the only planet with gravity or even the only object with gravity. every single planet and every star and even every comet or asteroid has gravity but its not just objects in space; everything is made of matter and all matter attracts other matter which is what causes gravity so the chair your sitting on, the computer in front of you, and even you have a small amount of gravity.

Gravity is an attractive force that occurs between all objects with mass. The gravity of any planet will pull objects in.

Exactly the same as its effects on Earth with which we are so familiar with. Every planet attracts objects on or near it toward its center, with a gravitational force that depends on the mass of the object, as well as on the mass and size of the planet.

The celestial bodies attract one another through gravity. Among other things, gravity will:* Keep objects, such as planets, in orbits around other objects, such as stars. * Change orbits - e.g., one planet may influence the orbit of another planet. * Make objects such as stars and planets form in the first place.

The force of gravity is determined by the masses of the objects and their distance apart.

The mass of a planet is measured based on the effects of its gravity on nearby objects.

Mainly, the Sun's gravity attracts a planet; as a result, the planet accelerates towards the Sun (the direction changes gradually, so the planet goes more in direction towards the Sun), resulting in the curved orbit.

No. All objects have a gravitational field. The more massive the object, the higher the gravity.

No, that's not true. All planets, moons, and stars have gravity. Actually all objects have gravity, it's just not very strong for small objects.

For objects on the surface of each planet, Venus has.

Objects have a gravitational pull proportional to their mass.

Gravity holds the atmosphere around the planet. Gravity is the force that attracts a body toward the center of the planet. For most purposes Newton's laws of gravity apply, with minor modifications to take the general theory of relativity into account.

Weight is the force of gravity on an object. An object's weight/gravity increases with its mass, and decreases with its distance from the gravity producer (for example, planet Earth).

It is called gravity, which is defined as the pulling force of an object. Each planet has their own gravity.

Gravity is the cause of the orbits, because without gravity all the objects would travel in straight lines. The orbit of a planet can be slightly affected by the gravity of other planets, of course. The planet Neptune was discovered by the effect of its gravity on the orbit of Uranus.

Gravity is a property of mass and space, and it exists everywhere in the universe. Every speck of mass in the universe attracts every other speck of mass in the universe with a gravitational force. Every star, planet, moon, asteroid, comet, meteorite, gas cloud, dust cloud, hairball, and raindrop "has gravity". No planet has no gravity

Gravity is the force that pulls things towards other objects. Like planets gravitational pull is from the core. The core of the planet pulls objects toward it but the ground protects us from reaching it.And

There is no planet that don't have gravity.

Every planet has gravity because every planet has mass.

A star will attract other objects (such as another nearby star, or a planet) gravitationally; in turn, according to Newton's Third Law, it will also be affected gravitationally by the other object. That is, if star "A" attracts star "B", then star "B" will also attract star "A".

Back when Pluto was still listed as a planet it was considered to have the weakest gravity of all the solar system's planets. Now that Pluto has been demoted from planetary status, the planet with the weakest surface gravity is Mercury. While Pluto's gravity is weaker than that of any planet in the solar system, there are still many non-plantery objects with weaker surface gravity.
