## amishra Group Title Is gravitational field strength and gravity one and the same? Can we use them interchangeably? one year ago one year ago

1. TarunRaina

No, Gravitational field strength is the magnitude of Gravitational force at a particular point, at a particular instant while Gravity is the term we use to refer to gravitational force, in General

2. TarunRaina

no you can't they have particular places of application

@TairunRaina Quote: "Gravitational field strength is the magnitude of Gravitational force" Gravitational field is NOT a force; it is the ration of a force by a mass.

$F=\frac{MmG}{r^2}$$Field_G=\frac{MG}{r^2}$They re in the same direction, that is inwards to the body

But their VALUES on earth remain the same right? That is 9.81 ?
