# How strong is the force of gravity?

**2 Answers**

Gravity on Earth has a force at the surface of 9.8 meters per second squared. This force decreases the further one is away from the surface.

The strength of the force due to the acceleration caused by gravity depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them. The formula is given by F equals (m1 times m2 times G) divided by r squared, where G is the gravitational constant and r is the distance between m1 and m2.
