Gravitational Forces Between Objects | Reading Material | Grades 6-8
WHAT ARE GRAVITATIONAL FORCES BETWEEN OBJECTS?

On Earth, gravity gives weight to objects and pull objects toward the center of Earth. The Moon also affects this force and is responsible for the changing ocean tides. Gravitational force also occurs naturally between any objects that have mass or energy (including planets, stars, and galaxies) and pulls them together.

Relationship Between Mass and Gravity

Relationship Between Mass and Gravity

The force of gravity depends on the size (mass) of an object. The bigger the object, the stronger the force of gravity. The force of gravity will also depend on how close or far apart one object is from another. For example, if two objects are close together, the force of gravity is greater than if they were farther apart.
