Mini-Quiz: Overview of Gravity and Gravitation

by Ron Kurtus (revised 26 November 2010)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What is a major concept of gravity?

Gravity equations are based on the weight of an object

The acceleration due to gravity is constant close to Earth

Objects must be made of some metal to be affected by gravity

2. Which is the correct theory of gravitation?

Dark gravitation is the only true theory

Gravity

They all apply in certain situations

3. What is the use of gravity and gravitation equations?

They are mainly used for student homework exercises

They allow for experimental predictions

They prove that Einstein was more correct than Newton

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
