Section 4, Chapter 5

Katelyn Buckland, Caitlin Bucksbaum


Gravity is an attraction between objects that is caused due to their masses.

The more mass, the heavier the attraction

All objects in the universe attract to each other through gravitational force

The mass relates to the gravitational force because the more an object has the more attraction it will have.

The distance affects the gravitational force because the more distance a way from each-other the less attraction they have.

Mass and weight are often confused because mass is the amount of matter in an object and weight has to do with how heavy an object is.
