Q:

# How much gravity does Saturn have?

A:

The surface gravity at the equator of Saturn is 10.4 meters per second squared. Compared to the Earth's gravity of 9.806 meters per second squared, Saturn's gravity is slightly greater that of the Earth's.

Saturn is one of the outer planets that is a gas giant. Its atmosphere is made up of mainly hydrogen and helium and traces of methane and water ice. This planet has a density of 0.687 grams per cubic centimeters, which makes it the least dense planet in the solar system.

Some of Saturn's most interesting features are its rings and moons. In 1610, Galileo Galilei was the first astronomer to detect the rings of Saturn while using his telescope. Later, astronomers discovered that a ring system exists around Saturn. Saturn also has more than 50 known moons, the largest being Titan.
