Q. 195.0( 2 Votes )

Gravitational force is related to weight. List some points to justify this statement.

Answer :

Gravitational force is proportional to the product of the mass of the two objects.

So more the mass/weight of the object, more is the gravitational force.


When we drop a stone from a multi-storey building, gravitational force acts on it and the stone gets attracted towards earth very quickly.


But when we drop a feather from the same building, it will take time to reach the earth’s surface as its mass is negligible as compared to the stone. So the magnitude of gravitational force acting on feather is less.
