Gravitation Forced

Gravitation Class 9 Notes CBSE Science Chapter 9

Gravitational Forces 

All objects in this universe attract each other, this force of attraction is called Gravitational Force

 Newton observations 

why does Apple fall on Earth from a tree?  Because earth attracts it towards itself.

Can Apple also attract the farth? 
Yes, it also attracts the earth as per Newton's third laws [ Every action has an equal and opposite reaction] But the mass of earth is much larger than apple therefore forth never move towards it. 

Universal Law of Gravitation :

 Sir Issac Newton in 1684 Proposed a law about force of attraction between the two objects in
the universe which is known as newton's Law of gravitation.

 According to this law 

Every object attracts every. other object.
This force is directly proportional to product of their masses force is inversely Proportional to the Square of distance between them.

let my and my be the masses of two objects and distance d then force of attraction between them Fd my xm Fd (1)-

from above equations, we can write as da F= Gi mama ushere Gi is gravitational Constant.

Importance of Universal Low of Gravitation:

 (1) The force that binds us to the Earth. (1) The motion of moon around the forth. The motion of earth around the Sun. (N) The tides due to moon in the Sea.

Q.What is Free Fall?
 A.whenever objects fall towards earth due to earth's gravity and no other force is acting upon it. the object is said to be in Free Fall. Dusing this free fall direction do not change but Velocity continuously changes which is called Acceleration due to gravity. •Denoted by g SI unit = mis (Some as acceleration)

 Value of 'g 

on the Surface of earth s we know that force acting on an object F--(7) No man of earth F= me mass of object

R= radius of object.

we also know from 2nd tow of motion

F mg F=ma, here a=g)

From eqn () and (1), we have

mxg = GMem R


when body is at distance 'r' from Centre of earth then.

9-GM parts of  Value of 'g' may be Vary at different parts of earth- From the squelch 9= GM, it is clear that value of g depends on & means distance of object from earth's cerere Because shape of earth is not a perfect sphere. It is flat at poles and bulged out CTE BET) of the equator. See the value of 'g' is gavater at the poles. and lesser at the equator But for Convenience we take gas constant. Calculation of 9: 24 = 9-GM R

Difference between Gt and  (Important)"

14s value is 6-644x1" Ns value is 9-8 mle

Nm /kg.

Its values mains Constant everywhere Varius places. Hs unit is Nn²/kg Hs unit is m It is Scaly quantity 14 is a vector quantity E

Its valur varies at Equation of motion when an object is falling freely towards earth or than vertically ups


Case when an object is falling towards earth with Initial Velocity (u), then Vu+gt

(here a=g) Case an object is falling from rest position means initial velocity (u=0).


Vu S-ut-gt


Case- then an object is thrown vertically upward's with initial ve bity (u), then gravitational acceleration (g) will be negative motion  opposite g act karega thot's why Reigate sign.

Mass & Mass of an object is the measure of Hs inertia.

S1 unit Kilogram (kg) Mass is a scalar quantity.

Mass of a body remains constant

• Mass of a body cannot be zero.


 The fore by which an object is attracted towards the Centre of earth is Called Weight of that object. We know, Force = mxa F= meg (as a g). from above definition, this ferre is weight = mxg St. unit Newton (ND. vector quantity.

Distinguish between Mass and weight [Important]


Mass is inertia of object weight = mass x acceleration The total quantity of matt Gravitational fere by which in an object is called mass earth attract an object is Called weight

3 Mass of an object semaine weight of object is different at different places

Measurement of mase is Measurement of weight is done by using beam balance done by using spring balance-

Mass can not be zero. weight can be Zero if g is zero. weight of an Objection Moon : (Proof/derivation tight of an object on earth.
