Why is gravity the weakest force?

It's true that gravity is comparatively weak. But it makes up for its weakness by extending its influence out infinitely far. The gravity weakens the farther you get from an object, but theoretically, you can continue to calculate the gravitational force no matter how far you are from the object you are considering.

It is the weakest force because it is felt only when there are huge difference in the masses of the given bodies.

e.g Sun(huge mass)

Earth(large mass)

we(negligible mass compared to these masses)

According to Newton,there is a force existing which attracts one body towards another body but it is not felt because it is negligible.This force is gravitational force as it is not felt it is weakest force.

As explained by string theory, gravity is caused by gravitons. Gravitons are able to freely pass through the 8 dimensions so it is diffused by a factor of 8. You feel only 1/8 of gravity's real power so it appears to be weaker than the of universal forces.

Because both the Earth and the moon are

electrically neutral.
