  • Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation  EverythingEverything that hasthat has mass, hasmass, has gravitygravity
  • Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation  When something is very large,When something is very large, like the Earthlike the Earth  The gravity is easy to detectThe gravity is easy to detect  Harder to detect the gravity ofHarder to detect the gravity of really small objectsreally small objects
  • Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation  The force of gravityThe force of gravity depends on:depends on:  How massive the objectsHow massive the objects areare  How far apart the objectsHow far apart the objects areare
