What’s it about?

Even though some forces exist in nature that we are unable to see, we still are able to see what effect such forces, such as ‘gravity’ can have with some interesting science experiments. Gravity can be explained as the force with which the earth attracts bodies near its surface, which in turn affects the weight of an object. Try the following science experiment:

How does it work?

Unfortunately, this section is only available in the e-book version of the project.

Weight is the measurement of the amount of downward force or ‘gravity’ pulling on an object towards the earth’s surface. An object’s weight decreases the further away it moves from the earth’s surface and the earth’s gravitational pull is the most at the surface.
