# How can you calculate the force of gravity that earth exerts on an object at the earth's surface?

Answer . The force due to gravity is usually measured by a device called the Atwood machine, basically a pulley system with two unequal weights on both sides.

A "centrifugal force" that counteracts gravity in part. Two reasons: 1. Different distances from the Earth's cente (MORE)

# Explain why the force of gravity is not exactly the same everywhere on earth's surface?

The elevation, i.e. radius from the center of the Earth, is not constant around the Earth. You have mountains and you have oceans, with widely varying elevation. Also, the radius of the Earth at the equator is larger than the radius at the poles, also making a difference in elevation. Recall that (MORE)

# What does a force of 5g means to an astrnaut if he often refer to forces as multiples of the forces of gravity on earth's surface during space flight?

This means that during space flight the astronaut is feeling a force which is 5 times that of gravity, therefore the astronaut is being pulled five times as much as he is standing on the planet

# Is the earth's gravitational force greater on the surface of the Earth than it is a mile above the Earth?

I'd assume Yes. It makes sence that the further you get from the earth the lesser it's pull of gravity, although it would be a miniscule difference. However, the denser gasses that collect within a mile from earth may cancel out this minimal difference or even make it greater.

inside whats called earths ring of fire where there has been the most volcano eruptions

# What is the force of gravity on a 500N man stading on the earth's surface?

If the bathroom scale reads 500N when the man stands on it, then that's a clear indication that the force of gravity between the man and the Earth is 500N. That number is referred to as the man's "weight" on Earth. It's also the Earth's weight on the man.

# What forces magma to Earth's surface?

Generally, its higher temperature. The temperature of a rising magma is generally higher than the temperature of its surrounding rocks. Because of its higher temperature, it is also lighter compared to the surrounding rocks (it has a lower density), so it rises. Imagine a hot air balloon: it rise (MORE)

1580 n actually this answer is wrong, here's the right one with workings. when the surface acceleration and radius are known, the equation for acceleration at another point is: a = ( sa / ( ( d/r )^2 ) ) key: sa = surface acceleration (earth = 9.81 ( m/s )/s ) d = distance from earths centre (MORE)

# How do destructive forces affect earth's surface?

Destructive forces affect the Earth because a destructive force is a process in which Earth's landforms are broken down by: weathering, erosion, landslides, volcanic eruptions, earth quakes, and floods. Rivers keep eroding the land under neath it so it keeps going farther and farther down. (That's h (MORE)

Starting from the core, here is a list of how to get to the surface(crust): core (middle), mantle (biggest), crust (surface, ground,rock)

# What is the force called that pulls objects down to the Earth's surface?

Gravity, but it does not pull it to the surface of the earth but rather, the core of the earth. But the surface gets in the way, and so everything stays down.

# What is the force of gravity on a 500 N women standing on the earth's surface?

"500 N" is a force. The only reason I can think of why you would call her a "500 N woman" would be if that's her weight. So that's the magnitude of both of the mutual gravitational forces between her and the Earth, aka her weight . . . 500 newtons (about 112.5 pounds).

# What forces affect rocks above the earth's surface?

The main force that affects the rocks on the earth's surface is heat and erosion. Erosion causes rocks to have landslides and heat changes their structure causing them to take place as different structures.

# What force allows asteroids to fall from orbit and hit Earth's surface?

The asteroids that strike earth's surface do not fall from orbit.Asteroids have fairly small masses, so their orbits are easilyaltered by interactions with other objects.

The forces that drive the rock cycle beneath the earth's surfaceare not the same as the forces that drive the rock cycle on or nearearth's surface because the processes of the rock cycle beneath theearth surface and above the earth surface are diffferent.
