wat u think about gravitation?

gravitation is a force related to and proportional to mass of bodies. as per einsteins theory of relativity masses creates a curvature in space fabric.the heavier the matter the deeper the curvature and hence lighter matter will move towards the heavier body. he has proved that gravitational force travels at the speed of light. another theory talks about elementary particles called gravitons causing gravity,but is not proved rigorously.

gravitation is great power in the world. it attract everything down. for example if you take jump in the air, it attract you down.

Depends on what you mean. I don't think anything about it normally, it's just there, neither good nor bad. I think it is, or I should rather say I know it is, a force that works between all bodies with mass. Actually, if there's enough mass, it also bends light, and as photons don't have any mass, it can also interact with bodies without mass. I think it is quite exciting that they managed to trace the Higgs boson, I hope they will gain new insight about gravition from it.

Solar system - A view of the solar system.
Gravity or Gravitation is a property by which all objects attract each other. Modern physics describes gravitation using the general theory of relativity, but the much simpler Newton's law of universal gravitation provides an excellent approximation in many cases. Gravitation is the reason for the very existence of the Earth, the Sun, and other celestial bodies; without it, matter would not have coalesced into these bodies and life as we know it would not exist. Gravitation is also responsible for keeping the Earth and the other planets in their orbits around the Sun, the Moon in its orbit around the Earth, for the formation of tides, and for various other natural phenomena that we observe.

Its all waves piercing through everything that comes on its way getting. It’s not forming any curvature but piercing the waves of other body. More the piercing more is the effect of gravity. U can call it white energy that is trying to hold everything around it, trying to negate the so called dark energy

One of the fundamental forces in nature

Attraction of matter by matter; can be detected best, if at least on of the partners has astronomical dimensions. Like Newton's apple falling from a tree onto earth's surface. What hasn't been found yet: The Graviton, which is the subatomar particle, which transmits gravity.

It is a force .Newton has said about his in his theory.Because of the gravitational force of earth,whenever we throw anything upward it comes to ground.It will be less in other planets and hence we feel that we are flying. Newton determined this on seeing a apple falling from tree.

the more i try flying,the more it pulls me down.

I studied physics and gravitation in school. I think something related to force pull of earth

Isn't it a theory? Made up from a magnet of somekind that attracts matter towards it.
