  3. a solemn and dignified feeling
  4. Gravitation, or gravity, a non-contact force, is one of the four fundamental interactions of nature (along with the strong force, electromagnetism and the weak force), in which objects with mass attract one another., UCR Mathematics. 1998. ...
  5. Gravity, in the context of fermenting alcoholic beverages, refers to the specific gravity of the wort or must at various stages in the fermentation. This article focuses primarily on the brewing industry. The concepts and equations are basically the same in the wine making industry.
  6. Gravity is the debut album of Alejandro Escovedo.
  7. Gravity is the fourth studio album by progressive rock band Anekdoten released in June 2003 in both CD and Vinyl LP formats. The first Japanese LP edition contained a bonus CD of material recorded live at Nearfest 2000.
  8. In astronomy, the discovery and application of Newton's law of gravity accounted for the detailed information we have about the planets in our solar system, the mass of the sun, the distance to stars and even the theory of dark matter. ...
  9. Gravity is the acclaimed second album from Hip Hop group Da Bush Babees. The crew got help from a number of fellow Native Tongues members, including The Ummah, Mos Def and De La Soul's Posdnous. The lead single "The Love Song" received strong airplay prior to the album's release. ...
  10. Resultant force on Earth's surface, of the attraction by the Earth's masses, and the centrifugal pseudo-force caused by the Earth's rotation; Gravitation, universal force exercised by two bodies onto each other (In casual discussion, gravity and gravitation are often used interchangeably); The ...
  11. The weight of a liquid relative to the weight of an equal volume of water. Specific gravity must be checked before and after fermentation. Used as an indication of the amount of alcohol present in the finished beer.
  12. A mutual physical force of nature that causes two bodies to attract each other.
  13. A physical force that appears to exert a mutual attraction between all masses. It is proportional to the mass of the object. In Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, it is explained as a curvature of space-time.
  14. Specific gravity. The ratio between equal volumes of water and another liquid, where the weight of the water is given a value of 1. The specific gravity of oil is given as API Gravity.
  15. The attractive effect that any massive object has on all other massive objects. The greater the mass of the object, the stronger its gravitational pull.
  16. The natural force of attraction of the mass of a heavenly body (as the earth) for bodies at or near its surface.
  17. An attractive force between any two objects. The strength of the force varies with the mass of each object and the distance between them. Scientists today do not know at all how gravity works!
  18. The force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or the weight pressed upon each of us by a thousand angels sitting on our heads? You decide.

  20. One of the four fundamental forces, gravity is the weakest force but it is always attractive and has an infinite range. Therefore its effects are cumulative and it is the dominant force for large scale structures in the universe such as solar systems, galaxies, and clusters. ...
  21. A force with infinite range which acts between objects, such as planets,according to their mass.
