Gravity is the force that pulls objects towards each other where a body with more mass has a higher gravitational pull. The space between these bodies is what is referred as gravitational field of an object. Having covered this topic fully, test your understanding by taking the simple quiz below.
Work done in moving 1Kg from the floor to a point P
Work done in moving a test mass from the floor to a point P
Work done in moving 1Kg from infinity to a point P
Work done in moving a test mass from infinity to a point P
Work done in moving a 1Kg from the the surface of the planet to a point P
Work done in moving a test mass from the surface of the planet to a point P
Work done per unit mass in moving small point mass from the floor to a point P
Work done in moving a test mass from the floor to a point P
Work done in moving small point mass from infinity to a point P
Work done per unit mass in moving small point mass from infinity to a point P
Work done in moving a small test mass from the the surface of the planet to a point P
Work done per unit mass in moving a test mass from the surface of the planet to a point P
Force acting on a point mass
Force acting per unit mass on a point mass
Gravitational Potential Energy acting on a point mass.
Gravitational Potential Energy per unit mass acting on a point mass.
Gravitational field strength = gravitational potential
Gravitational field strength = gravitational potential energy
Gravitational field strength = gravitational potential gradient
Gravitational Potential = gravitational field strength
Gravitational Potential = (gravitational field strength)/(Radius of planet)
Gravitational Potential = (gravitational field strength)x (radius of planet)
They are parallel to each other
They are equidistant
The are perpendicular to each other
Lines move radially away from the centre of the mass
Lines are concentric and spaced equidistant from each other
Lines are concentric and spaced further apart from each other as they move away from the centre of the mass.
Wait!
Here's an interesting quiz for you.
