## What is gravitational attraction?

Definitions of gravitational attraction. (physics) **the force of attraction between all masses in the universe**; especially the attraction of the earth’s mass for bodies near its surface. synonyms: gravitation, gravitational force, gravity.

## What do you call the mass under gravitational attraction?

**THE WEIGHT FORCE 1**. The weight-force or weight of an object is the force due to gravity which acts on the object attracting it towards the centre of the earth.

## What is the value of G universal gravitational contact?

G is called the constant of gravitation and is equal to **6.67 × 10 ^{−}^{11} newton-metre^{2}-kilogram^{−}^{2}**.

Since the **gravitational force is directly proportional to the mass of both interacting objects**, more massive objects will attract each other with a greater gravitational force. So as the mass of either object increases, the force of gravitational attraction between them also increases.

## How does gravitational attraction work?

The answer is gravity: an **invisible force that pulls objects toward each other**. … 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.
