FAQs on Worksheet: Gravitation - Science Class 9

 1. What is gravitation?
Ans. Gravitation is the force of attraction that exists between any two objects with mass. It is responsible for keeping planets in orbit around the sun and objects on Earth's surface.
 2. How does the force of gravitation work?
Ans. The force of gravitation works by the principle of mass attracting mass. The larger the mass of an object, the stronger its gravitational force. The force decreases as the distance between the objects increases.
 3. What is Newton's law of universal gravitation?
Ans. Newton's law of universal gravitation states that every particle in the universe attracts every other particle with a force directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
 4. What is the difference between mass and weight in the context of gravitation?
Ans. Mass is the amount of matter in an object and is constant regardless of the location, while weight is the force exerted on an object due to gravity and varies depending on the strength of the gravitational field.
 5. How does gravitation affect motion in space?
Ans. Gravitation affects motion in space by causing objects to orbit around planets, stars, or other celestial bodies. The gravitational force acts as a centripetal force, keeping objects in a curved path rather than moving in a straight line.
