## Does gravity depend on the mass?

Mathematically, we say the force of gravity depends directly upon the masses of the objects and inversely upon the distance between the objects squared. Your weight is actually just the force of gravity between your body’s mass and the Earth’s mass. We feel the Earth pulling on us with a force that we call gravity.

## How does gravity influence all objects with mass?

Gravity acts on all masses equally, even though the effects on both masses may be different because gravity causes all objects to fall at the same constant rate of 9.8 m/s2. The mass of an object ALWAYS stays the same. Your mass on Earth will be the same if you were on the moon.

**What does gravity depend on between objects?**

The strength of gravity between two objects depends on two factors: the masses of the objects and the distance between them. The force of gravity between two objects is greater if the objects are closer together.

**What is the gravity between two objects proportional to?**

Gravitational force -an attractive force that exists between all objects with mass; an object with mass attracts another object with mass; the magnitude of the force is directly proportional to the masses of the two objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two objects.

### Which two changes would increase the gravitational force between two objects?

So as the mass of either object increases, the force of gravitational attraction between them also increases. If the mass of one of the objects is doubled, then the force of gravity between them is doubled. If the mass of one of the objects is tripled, then the force of gravity between them is tripled.

### How does the gravitational force between two objects change if masses of both the objects are halved without altering the distance between them?

If masses of both objects are halved without changing distance between them, then the gravitational force would become F/4. Explanation: We have seen that the masses that are responsible for making the force are being reduced to their half.

**What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if masses of both the objects are doubled and the distance between them is also doubled?**

From the relationship, (i) If the mass of one object (say body 1) is doubled, then Thus, the gravitational force between the two objects gets doubled. (ii) If the distance between the two objects is doubled, then Thus, the gravitational force between the two objects becomes one-fourth.

**What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if the mass of one object is doubled?**

If the mass is doubled for one object. F = 2F, so the force is also doubled. Force thus becomes one-fourth of its initial force.

#### How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when the mass is reduced to half?

According to the law of gravitation, the force of attraction acting between two bodies is given by, Thus, when the distance between the objects is reduced to half the gravitational force increases by four times the original force.

#### Does the gravitational force between two objects depend on the medium between them?

Explanation: Gravitational Force does not depend on the medium between the objects. Thus, Gravitational Force is also independent of medium between the objects.

**How does the force of gravity between two bodies change when the distance between them is tripled?**

If the mass of one of the objects is tripled, then the force of gravity between them is tripled. If the separation distance between any two objects is tripled (increased by a factor of 3), then the force of gravitational attraction is decreased by a factor of 9 (3 raised to the second power).

**How does the gravitational force between two objects change if the mass of each object is tripled and the distance between them is reduced to 1/8 of its prior distance?**

If the mass of one of the objects is tripled, then the force of gravity between them is tripled. Since gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square of the separation distance between the two interacting objects, more separation distance will result in weaker gravitational forces.

## How does the gravitational force between two objects depend on mass?

How does the gravitational force between two objects depend on the mass of an object? The force of gravity depends directly upon the masses of the two objects, and inversely on the square of the distance between them. This means that the force of gravity increases with mass, but decreases with increasing distance between objects.

## Does the force of gravity increase with distance?

This means that the force of gravity increases with mass, but decreases with increasing distance between objects. What is the gravitational force between two objects? The gravitational force between two objects is proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.

**What happens when the mass of an object is doubled?**

If one of the masses is doubled, the force of gravity between 2 objects is doubled which decreases the the force of gravity. Did this page answer your question? Still have questions?
