### How does the law of universal gravitation explain why gravity between an elephant and earth is greater the gravity between a cat and earth?

The law of gravity says the force experienced is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Effectively on earth the measurement of the force of gravity on a mass is the weight of the mass. As an Elephant has more mass than a Cat, it weighs more than the Cat (because the mass of the Earth is constant).

### How does the law of universal gravitation explain why gravitation between an elephant and earth is greater between a cat and earth?

The distances between each animal and the center of the Earth are essentially identical, but the elephant has more mass than the cat. So, when the appropriate numbers for each are entered into the the formula for the gravitational forces of attraction according to Newton's universal law, the force expected in the case of the elephant will be found to be greater than the force expected to act on the cat, by the same ratio as that of the elephant's mass to the cat's mass.
