What is Gravity?

Gravity ( गुरुत्व )  is a force of attraction between two objects. All objects with mass have gravity. Gravity acts like a magnet – pulling objects together.

Technical Definition:

Gravity is most accurately described by the general theory of relativity (proposed by Albert Einstein in 1915) which describes gravity, not as a force, but as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime caused by the uneven distribution of mass/energy. For most applications, gravity is well approximated by Newton’s law of universal gravitation, which postulates that the gravitational force of two bodies of mass is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.


Tides are caused by the rotation of the Earth and the gravitational effects of the Moon and Sun.

Gravity keeps Earth and the other planets in our solar system in orbit around the Sun. It also keeps the Moon in orbit around Earth.


Gravity also means, seriousness (गंभीरता).

I don’t think you understand the gravity of the situation.
