Gravity is the force that attracts a body towards the centre of the earth, or towards any other physical body having mass.


Gravity is the force that attracts two bodies toward each other, the force that causes apples to fall toward the ground and the planets to orbit the sun. The more massive an object is, the stronger its gravitational pull.
