FACTORS AFFECTING MASS AFFECTS
How does mass affect the
gravity between objects?
Gravity is “the force that attracts a body toward the
center of the earth, or toward any other physical body
Gravity is what keeps up down on the ground, and is what
makes things fall. It’s a physical force that brings us to
towards the center of the earth. When you stand up, you
are pushing against the ground, and it’s pushing back
with equal force, making you stand up.

HOW DOES MASS AFFECT GRAVITY
There are 2 planets orbiting each
other, as time passes, object 1 grows
in mass. This causes the gravitational
force between the objects to increase.
They both increase overtime, which
increases the gravitational force even
Gravity is very important for us, and the whole solar
system. It’s what keeps us at a steady distance from the
sun, keeps our atmosphere attached, and the moon
orbiting us. It holds us down to the surface of the Earth,
keeping us from floating away.
When mass increases, gravity’s force increases.
When distance increases, gravity’s force decreases.
