Examples of gravitational in a Sentence

  1. Sharon Morsink:

    At some level, the majority of physicists believe that Einsteins theory of gravity, called general relativity, is correct. However, that belief is mainly based on observations of phenomena taking place in regions of space with weak gravity, while Einsteins theory of gravity is meant to explain phenomena taking place near really strong gravitational fields, neutron stars and black holes are the objects that have the strongest known gravitational fields, so any test of gravity that involves these objects really test the heart of Einsteins gravity theory.

  2. Paul Kalas:

    We think the whole [fat Jupiter] system has recently been disturbed by some violent gravitational interaction, though we're not sure exactly what happened, something recently happened that kicked it out.

  3. Szabolcs Marka:

  5. Yun Zhang:

    Most planetary bodies consist of numerous pieces of rock that have coalesced under the influence of gravity. You could imagine them as sandcastles floating in space. Their structure can be disrupted when the force acting on the individual 'sand particle' is larger than their mutual gravity, similar to the ocean tides on Earth, which result from the gravitational pulls of the sun and the moon, in space a planetary body that comes close enough to a star is subjected to the strong gravitational pulls of that star.
