      Apr 24,  · Facts About Gravity for Kids Everything that has matter generates gravity, from a grain of sand to the largest objects in the universe. That gravity pulls things together. Size Matters. When it comes to gravity, the larger an object is, the stronger its force. A person creates gravity but not enough to pull objects toward him or cause. Of these, gravity may the most obvious, but it is also the most mysterious. Newton managed to predict the force of gravity but couldn't explain how it worked at a distance. Einstein picked up on the simple premise that gravity and acceleration are interchangeable to devise his mind-bending general relativity, showing how matter warps space and. Gravimetry is the measurement of the strength of a gravitational field. Gravimetry may be used when either the magnitude of gravitational field or the properties of matter responsible for its creation are of interest. Units of measurement. Gravity is usually measured in units of acceleration. In the SI system of units, the standard unit of.

Gravity (from Latin gravitas, meaning 'weight'), or gravitation, is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy—including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light —are brought toward (or gravitate toward) one another.
