EDIT:

Can we have some background information of it? I was taught that gravity is derived from Mass or something.

No it is not.

no it isnt.. Its to do with some other spacey bull **** (i do like space and that.. but "bull ****" fitted the anger i wished to portray(sp?) in my post.)

You can't prove the laws of physics, so this is all guessing.

Or can you? I forget everything from physical science class.

I chose "Gravity is caused by the Earth's rotation"

Why??

After some brief preliminary research (meaning the first two google results) it seems to be generally accepted that gravity isn't caused by earth's rotation. Isn't inertia caused by rotation?

not caused by rotation.

Gravity is due to the relativistic effects of the strong force causing increases in mass and a comparable contraction of space in the atomic nucleus, diluted by the greater atomic volume. And this is why Newton could show that gravity is proportional to mass, it is why Einstein could show that gravity is equivelent to the curvature of space-time, and it is also why gravity causes relativistic effects without imparting relativistic speeds, since these all have as their basis, the relativistic effects produced by the strong force in nucleons,

I strongly suspect this is some sort of trap...

Thank you, you have given me back some of my faith in humanity.

My mum was convinced earlier that gravity was caused by the Earth spinning. I just wondered if this was a relatively common misconception.

I guessed not rotation...I honestly have no idea how it works but its got some **** to do with like the earths core or somethin...

it's caused by mass, the rotation causes centrifugal force

AFAIK, the earth's rotation DOES have an effect on the gravity, but this is not 'true' gravity as such, but the same effect as that of the backwards-pushing effect in a rollercoaster.

THAT'S the words I were looking for

****, I voted for the wrong one. Meant to vote for NOT because of rotation...

I thought that you mods make an annual chart of the Pit's intelligence level at the end of the year, to find out the amount of bans for the forthcoming year.

im sure my teachers have always said it was caused byy the spining of the molten lava in the earth or something like that
4. fat/ugly girls....just 'cause

I'm actually not really pissed off by any of those things....so you lose.

lol what fat girls piss every one off.

Are we allowed to use the Pit to settle debates? Because if so I need to start a thread called "Are Subway Sandwiches Gay?".
#38
I am sorry. That is officially the dumbest question I have ever heard. Take a freaking physics class, gravity is caused by mass and even if the earth's spinning had something to do with gravity, it would repel us due to centrifugal force.


You know what's going on.

Flaming an Admin, you obviously have much more scientific knowldge than Pit knowledge.
