Gravity Worksheets

Have you ever jumped and landed? That invisible force that makes you land or pulls you back to Earth is called gravity. All planets have this force that pulls them back to the center of it. Anything that has mass, also has a gravity. The larger the object the greater gravity that is exerted by it. This is why astronauts seem to float on our moon. The moon is much smaller than planet Earth and therefore it has a lot less gravity. The sun gravity keeps all the planets in our galaxy orbiting it. This sets up the Earth to be a very comfortable distance and receive the sun's energy at just the right intensity for life to thrive on it. These worksheets will examine the many different aspects of gravity.
