Is There Gravity On The Moon





We know everyone on earth deals with gravity, but how about on the moon?

Earth has gravity and so does the moon. The strength of the gravity is related to the object’s mass and therefore the Earth’s gravity is huge. The moon’s mass is about one fourth of Earth’s mass. Therefore, the Moon only has one sixth of Earth’s gravity. However, the concentration of mass buried underneath the Moon’s surface makes the Moon’s gravity vary across its surface. This weaker strength of gravity made it possible for the astronauts to easily jump high on the surface of the Moon.
