What are some of the effects of gravity on Earth?


Gravitation on the earth's surface causes objects to fall with an approximate acceleration of about 9.8 metres per second. This pull also causes tides on the ocean due to effects of the moon and the sun. The sun has the greatest multiple earth gravity which measures at 27.90.

Gravity is the acceleration which the Earth imparts to objects on or near its surface. The force of gravity makes objects drop straight down when one lets go of them. It normally acts towards the centre of the Earth.
Gravity is the force that attracts a body towards the centre of the earth or towards another physical body having mass. Gravity helps to keep the earth in its orbit and stabilises everything in it hence the reason why things do not float. It causes heavier objects to fall faster than lighter ones if dropped at the same time. Gravity changes slightly due to the seasons, gravitational pull of the sun, latitudes, longitudes and altitude.
