Revision Notes

CHAPTER – 10

GRAVITATION

Gravity is one of the most basic forces in the universe. It plays a fundamental role not only

in the structure of our solar system but also in the way objects behave on Earth.

Gravitation

Gravitation is the force of attraction between two objects in the universe. Gravitation may be

the attraction of objects by the earth.

This force is proportional to the product of masses of the objects and inversely proportional

Gravitational force

Eg :- If a body is dropped from a certain height, it falls downwards due to earth’s gravity. If a

body is thrown upwards, it reaches a certain height and then falls downwards due to the

earth’s gravity.

GRAVITY

A natural force that pulls all objects toward the center of the earth

keeps the moon orbiting

It holds stars together . . .

And binds galaxies together for billions of years ….Prevents Planets from losing their

atmospheres.

The universal law of gravitation states that, ‘Every object in the universe attracts

every other object with a force which is directly proportional to product of the masses

and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.’

The strength of the gravitational attraction between two objects depends on two

factors:

How big the objects are (how much mass they have) and

How far apart they are.

3. Free Fall

With negligible air resistance, falling objects can be considered freely falling. objects

of different shapes accelerate differently (stone vs feather)

The unit of g is same as the unit of acceleration

From the second law of motion, force is the product of mass and acceleration. F = ma

For free fall, force is the product of mass and acceleration due to gravity.

where M is the mass of the Earth and d is the distance between the object and the earth.

For objects near or on the surface of the earth d is equal to the radius of the earth R

5. Mass and Weight:

Mass is a fundamental, universal property. You have the same amount of mass no

matter where you are in the Universe.

Weight is a force. It is the resultant gravitational force exerted on a body with mass m

by all the other bodies on the Universe.

Weight =

where is the mass of the Earth and R is the radius of the Earth.

The mass of the moon is less than the mass of the earth. So the moon exerts lesser

force on the objects than the earth.

The weight of an object on the moon is one sixth of its weight on the earth.

The weight of an object on the earth is the force with which the earth attracts the

object and the weight of an object on the moon is the force with which the moon

attracts the object.

Earth 5

Moon

Pressure is the force acting on unit area of a surface

8. Pressure In Fluids

Fluids exert pressure in all directions

Pressure exerted on fluids is transmitted equally in all directions.

9. Buoyancy

force. This property is called buoyancy or upthrust.

10. Why objects float or sink when placed on the surface of water?

Take some water in a beaker. Take a piece of cork and an iron nail of the same mass.

Place them on the water. The cork floats and the nail sinks.

If the density of an object is less than the density of a liquid, it will float on the liquid

and if the density of an object is more than the density of a liquid, it will sink in the

liquid.

fluid it experiences an upward force that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced

by it.’

12 .Relative density

The relative density of a substance is the ratio of the density of a substance to the

density of water. It is a ratio of similar quantities and has no unit.
