Gravity - Slav K - Symbiosis (CDr)
But even after more than years of study, the enigmatic force still lies at the heart of some of the discipline's greatest mysteries. Today, scientists know of four forces — things that attract or repel one object to or from another.
The strong force and the weak force operate only inside the centers of atoms. The electromagnetic force rules objects with excess charge like electrons, protons, and socks shuffling over a fuzzy carpet , and gravity steers objects with mass.
The first three forces largely escaped humanity's notice until recent centuries, but people have long speculated about gravity, which acts on everything, from raindrops to cannonballs. Ancient Greek and Indian philosophers observed that objects naturally moved toward the ground, but it would take a flash of insight from Isaac Newton to elevate gravity from an inscrutable tendency of objects to a measurable and predictable phenomenon.
This notion unified events that appeared totally unrelated, from apples falling to Earth although it probably didn't inspire his breakthrough, Newton did work near an apple tree to the planets orbiting the sun. He also put numbers to the attraction: Doubling the mass of one object makes its pull twice as strong, he determined, and bringing two objects twice as close quadruples their mutual tug.
Newton packaged these ideas into his universal law of gravitation. Updated makefile and added example. Renamed optional classes and fixed a setter unwanted side effect. Sep 7, Various Visual C fixes.

The team's findings were released in the Chinese Science Bulletin in February In October , the LIGO and Virgo detectors received gravitational wave signals within 2 seconds of gamma ray satellites and optical telescopes seeing signals from the same direction.
This confirmed that the speed of gravitational waves was the same as the speed of light. There are some observations that are not adequately accounted for, which may point to the need for better theories of gravity or perhaps be explained in other ways.

Science and Mathematics in Ancient Greek Culture. In Alfred A. Of course, other planets have lesser or greater masses than the Earth, so the weight of objects on those planets, and thus the amount of gravitational pull, will be different. In other words, the farther away an object is from the Earth or any large body , the less it will weigh.
If you stand at the top of a high mountain, you will weigh less than you do at sea level.Gravity is a one-size-fits-all tool and is light and easy to travel with, so use it anytime, anywhere that you can safely lie down on a flat surface.
