When dealing with the force of gravity between two objects, there are only two things that are important – mass, and distance. The force of gravity depends directly upon the masses of the two objects, and inversely on the square of the distance between them.

## What two factors affect an object?

Gravity is the force that gives weight to objects and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped. Two major factors, mass and distance, affect the strength of gravitational force on an object. You witness the first factor in everyday life – more massive objects are heavier.

## What is the attraction between two objects called?

Gravitational force: Everybody attracts another body by a force i.e force of attraction between two objects is called the force of gravitation.

## Which factor has the most impact on the gravitational force between two objects?

Gravity on Earth

On Earth, mass is the only factor that affects the gravitational force. Gravity affects an object with a large mass more than it affects an object with a small mass.

## Why is there an attraction between the objects?

The weight-force or weight of an object is the force because of gravity, which acts on the object attracting it towards the centre of the earth. Mass is a measure of the amount of material or matter that an object contains. The unit of mass is one kilogramme.

## What 2 factors affect the kinetic energy of an object?

Explain that there are two factors that affect how much kinetic energy a moving object will have: mass and speed. Have students complete this demonstration to learn how mass influences an object’s kinetic energy.

## What 2 factors need to be considered when working out the weight of an object?

The weight of an object is the force of attraction that the object has to the Earth. It is the product of the mass of the object, multiplied by the acceleration due to gravity. You may choose to calculate the weight of an object to solve a physics problem.

## What is a force of attraction between all objects?

Every object in the universe — stars, planets, moons, even you—has gravity. Gravity is a force of attraction between all objects.

## What energy is the mutual attraction between objects?

Gravity, also known as gravitation, is the mutual attraction of all entities having mass or energy.

## What is the force of attraction between two atoms?

Intermolecular forces are the forces of attraction or repulsion which act between neighboring particles (atoms, molecules, or ions ). These forces are weak compared to the intramolecular forces, such as the covalent or ionic bonds between atoms in a molecule.

## What are 2 ways you can increase the frictional force between two objects?

The three methods of increasing friction are: 1.) By applying more force to the object, 2.) By increasing the mass of the object that is causing friction, and 3.) By creating a rougher point of contact.

## In which example is the gravitational force of attraction between the two objects the greatest?

Objects that are closer together have a stronger force of gravity between them. For example, the moon is closer to Earth than it is to the more massive sun, so the force of gravity is greater between the moon and Earth than between the moon and the sun.

## What two factors affect the electric force between particles?

Charles Coulomb determined how to figure out the strength of the force between charged particles. As we’ll discuss in this lesson, he found that the force between charged particles was dependent on only two factors: the distance between the particles and the amount of electric charge that they carried.

## What are forces of attraction?

a force between two bodies, molecules, particles, or the like, that attracts each to the other. … Gravity is the force of attraction between two bodies that have mass.

## What 2 factors affect the strength of the force of gravity?

When dealing with the force of gravity between two objects, there are only two things that are important – mass, and distance. The force of gravity depends directly upon the masses of the two objects, and inversely on the square of the distance between them.

## What are the 2 main categories of forces?

Two groups of forces

- Gravity force.
- Magnetic force.
- Electric force.
