As the mass of an object increases, the pull of gravity
Stays the same
Why do we have a stronger gravitational attraction with Earth than the Sun?
the sun has a larger mass
the Earth has a larger mass
we are closer to center of sun
we are closer to center of Earth
If a feather and a hammer are dropped at the same time on the moon, where there is no atmosphere, which one will hit the ground first?
neither, there is no gravity on the moon.
hammer because it has more mass
feather because it has less mass
both will hit at the same time, there is no wind resistance
The force of gravity (mass x gravity) is also known as...
Earth's gravity, 9.8 m/s2, is considered a/an...
When placed at equal distances apart, the greatest gravitational attraction will be between two
A student drops a bowling ball and an apple from a third-story window. Both objects hit the ground at the same time. From the experiment, the student should conclude that
the apple weighs more than the bowling ball
more air friction is acting on the apple than on the bowling ball
gravity pulls on both objects, causing them to fall at the same time.
The force of gravity is related to the masses of objects attracting each other. Which planet has the greatest mass?
Gravity on moon is less than the gravity on earth because
moon's mass is less
moon's mass is more
moon's mass is equal to Earth
moon has no mass
Which of the following data would support the claim that the gravitational force between objects depends on mass?
An object's weight can change depending on where it is on Earth.
Further away a planet is from the sun the smaller the gravitational force.
Gravitational force is stronger on more massive planets.
A rocket can escape Earth's gravity by traveling at high speed.
Mass and weight are the same thing.
An astronaut way out in space is considered to be "weightless" because
His mass is so small relative to earth that gravity doesn't affect him.
Gravitational force decreases greatly over long distances
Gravitational force pushes objects away from each other at long distances.
Objects far away from earth have less mass.
The definition of gravitational field is
The region of space surrounding a body where other bodies will feel an attractive force due to it.
The region of space surrounding a body where other bodies will feel an repulsive force due to it.
The region of space surrounding a charge where other charges will feel an attractive force due to it.
The region of space surrounding a charge where other charges will feel an repulsive force due to it.
