User: The sun has more mass than Earth, which has more mass than the moon. If the distance between each object was the same, which gravitational force would be the largest? A. The gravitational force between the sun and Earth. B. The gravitational force between Earth and the moon. C. The gravitational force between the moon and the sun. D. The gravitational force between each pair of objects would be the same.

Weegy: The sun has more mass than Earth, which has more mass than the moon. If the distance between each object was the same, the largest gravitational force would be the C. [ The gravitational force between the moon and the sun. ]

User: The phrase terminal velocity can best be defined as A. the velocity of any falling object. B. the velocity of objects with little mass. C. the constant velocity of some falling objects. D. the velocity of something falling from a train terminal.

User: If the distance between two objects increased, which of the following things could keep the force of gravity between the two objects the same? A. Increasing the mass of one of the objects. B. Decreasing the mass of one of the objects. C. Increasing the velocity of one of the objects. D. Decreasing the velocity of one of the objects.

Weegy: D) the downward force of gravity and an initial forward velocity. When a mass is present in the above space-time it distorts it so that whilst it remains true that traveling through space causes you to travel through time, [ [ traveling through time now causes you to move (accelerate) through space. [ In other words just by existing, you are compelled to move through space - this is gravity. ]

User: A leaf falls from a tree. As you are watching the leaf fall, how can you tell that it has reached its terminal velocity? A. The leaf is accelerating. B. The leaf hits the ground. C. The leaf is experiencing a force. D. The leaf is falling with a constant velocity.

Weegy: You can tell that it has reached its terminal velocity when: The leaf is falling with a constant velocity.

User: A tree branch falls from a tree, accelerating at a constant rate until it hits the ground. Did the tree branch reach terminal velocity? A. No, because if it had it would not have hit the ground. B. Yes, because the tree branch fell at a constant velocity. C. Yes, because the forces on the tree branch were balanced. D. No, because it continued to accelerate until it hit the ground.

Weegy: B. Yes, because the tree branch fell at a constant velocity.
