Gravity is affected by the size of objects and the distance between objects. A measure of the amount of matter in an object is mass. An object with a greater mass falls faster than an object with a smaller mass. When the distance between two objects increases, the force of gravity decreases.

#### What happens to gravity when two objects move further apart?

Gravity is the universal force of attraction. This force of gravitational attraction is directly dependent upon the masses of both objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance that separates their centers. This means that as you move away from an object the gravitational force decreases.

### What force pulls two objects together?

gravitational pull

Gravity is a force which tries to pull two objects toward each other. Anything which has mass also has a gravitational pull. The more massive an object is, the stronger its gravitational pull is.

### How are mass and distance related to gravity?

The amount of gravity that something possesses is proportional to its mass and distance between it and another object. This relationship was first published by Sir Issac Newton. His law of universal gravitation says that the force (F) of gravitational attraction between two objects with Mass1 and Mass2 at distance D is:

## What happens to gravity as you get closer to an object?

Anything that has mass also has gravity. Objects with more mass have more gravity. Gravity also gets weaker with distance. So, the closer objects are to each other, the stronger their gravitational pull is.

### How does mass affect the attraction of an object?

The more mass, the more gravitons. Graviton theory also accounts for differences in gravitational attraction over distances. Most gravitons exist in a cloud around the object. As distance from the object increases, the density of the graviton cloud goes down, so there is less gravitational attraction.

#### Where does the gravitational pull of an object come from?

So, the closer objects are to each other, the stronger their gravitational pull is. Earth’s gravity comes from all its mass. All its mass makes a combined gravitational pull on all the mass in your body.
