Transcript of "Universal Gravitation"

  1. 1. Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation  EverythingEverything that hasthat has mass, hasmass, has gravitygravity
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation
  5. 5. Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation When gravity is the onlyWhen gravity is the only force acting on an object,force acting on an object, Its in “free fall”Its in “free fall”
  6. 6. Universal GravitationUniversal Gravitation Free fall near the Earth’sFree fall near the Earth’s surface is constantsurface is constant Fall at a rate of 9.8 m/sFall at a rate of 9.8 m/s22 (g)(g)
