Why is earth the only planet with gravity?
Asked in Planetary Science, Planet Earth
Is planet earth the only earth with gravity?
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.

Asked in Earth Sciences, Planet Earth
Why does earth have more gravity than any other planet?
The earth does not have more gravity than any other planet. It does have the highest surface gravity of any of the inner planets, but Jupiter (2.6 g), Neptune (1.14g) and Saturn (1.1g) each have a higher surface gravity than earth. The surface gravity of the three planets is written as a function of (as the multiple of) the surface gravity of earth (g). (If a planet had twice the surface gravity of earth, its surface gravity could be written as 2g.)
Asked in Planet Saturn
Does Saturn has a stronger or weaker gravity than earth?
Saturn has a stronger gravity than Earth because the diameter of the planet Saturn is larger than the diameter of the planet Earth. This implies that Saturn has a greater mass than the planet Earth and from Newton's law of gravity, a larger mass planet has a greater gravitational pull. Therefore, Saturn has a greater gravity than Earth. Edit: Yes, Saturn does have a greater mass than the Earth. However we usually mean "surface gravity" when we talk about the "gravity" of a planet. Because it has a big diameter you would be further from the centre of mass than on the Earth. This roughly cancels out Saturn's greater mass and so Saturn's surface gravity is only slightly greater than Earth's (according to most sources of reference).
