## FAQs on Maharashtra Board Class 10 Solutions for Science Chapter 1 Gravitation - PDF

**1. What is the value of the Universal Gravitational Constant?**

The value for the Universal Gravitational Constant is 6.7 x10^{-11}Nm^{2}Kg^{-2}.

**2. What is the force of gravitation between an object and the earth known as? **

The force of gravitation between any particular object and the earth is called the weight of the object. It can be achieved by multiplying the acceleration due to the gravity of an object with its mass.

**3. Define free fall. **

When an object falls due to the gravitational pull and that too without any resistance of air, it is called a free fall.

**4. What happens to the gravitational force between two objects in case the mass of one object is doubled?**

In that case, the gravitational force of the object will also increase to reach a double value.

**5. What are the SI units for Mass and weight?**

The SI unit for Mass is Kg or Kilogram, and the SI unit for weight is N or Newton, which is the same as the SI unit for Force.
