Jun 17, 2008 ... Jupiter is the most massive planet in our Solar System and; therefore, the gravity of Jupiter is the most intense in the Solar System. The gravity of Jupiter is 2.5 times what it is here on Earth. In the 1990s Jupiter's gravity tore apart Comet P/ Shoemaker-Levy 9 and pulled the broken pieces into the to planet.

May 4, 2006 ... Do you feel the pull yet? Let's calculate: Jupiter is 318 times more massive than Earth and 410 million miles away. According to Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, Jupiter pulls you up 34 million times less than Earth pulls you down. Jupiter's "pull" is utterly feeble. So it's all in your mind. But don't let that ...

The gravity on Jupiter is greater than the gravity on Earth because Jupiter is more massive. Although Jupiter is a great deal larger in size, its surface gravity is just 2.4 times that of the surface gravity of Earth. This is because Jupiter is mostly made up of gases. If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 240 pounds ...

Jan 8, 2016 ... if they don't have any solid mass inside them is an incorrect conclusion. Some have 'ordinary' solid cores, and the pressures in the centers of gas giants are so high, that they are even 'suspected' of compressing hydrogen into a 'metallic' state. Quoting from the Planetary core Wikipedia page: Gas giants ...

Jan 1, 2016 ... And when it comes to the planets of our solar system, which vary in size and mass, the strength of gravity on their surfaces varies considerably. For example, Earth's ..... As a result, Jupiter's surface gravity (which is defined as the force of gravity at its cloud tops), is 24.79 m/s, or 2.528 g. Gravity on Saturn:.

Nov 22, 2016 ... I was watching a show on one of the science channels a couple of nights ago and I think I heard that Jupiter's gravitational pull on the sun is around half a million miles (or could have been kilometers). Now, depending on Jupiter's position in relationship to Earths, at any time does it affect the Sun-Earth ...

Sep 17, 2014 ... A: Every planet in the solar system has a different gravitational pull, which is why your weight is different on different planets. Jupiter is a massive planet, so it has a massive gravitational pull. Jupiter's gravity is 2.4 times that of earth - so if you weighed 100 kg (220 lbs) here, you would weigh 240 kg (529 lbs) ...

Sep 18, 2017 ... As the most massive body in the solar system after the sun, the pull of Jupiter's gravity has helped shape the fate of our system. It may have violently hurled Neptune and Uranus outward, according to calculations published in the journal Nature. Jupiter, along with Saturn, may have slung a barrage of debris ...
