Gravity Examples in Everyday Life + Pictures

Gravity is a force that attracts an object towards the center of the earth or towards any physical object (that has mass). Gravity keeps all the planets in their orbit around the sun.

Here are some examples of gravity in everyday life:

  • #1 Force that attracts a water droplet falling off the leaf
  • #2 Force that attracts a coin slipped from the hand
  • #3 Force that attracts a tennis ball thrown up in the air
  • #4 Force that attracts water falling from the tap
  • #5 Force that attracts water falling from the waterfall
  • #6 Force that attracts a kite falling from the sky
  • #7 Force that attracts a ball dropped from some height
  • #8 Force that attracts a swimmer jumping into the swimming pool
  • #9 Force that attracts an apple falling from the tree
  • #10 Force that attracts water falling from a water sprinkler
  • #11 Force that attracts a stone rolling down the hill
  • #12 Force that attracts a piece of paper floating in the air
  • #13 Force that attracts a small stone thrown up in the air
  • #14 Force that attracts water falling from the shower

Let’s one by one discuss the above examples in detail.

#1 Force that attracts a water droplet falling off the leaf

In the rainy season, you may have seen many water droplets falling off the leaves. But have you wondered what pulls these water droplets downwards? It’s gravity. When a water droplet falls off the leaf, gravity pulls it downwards towards the ground.

#2 Force that attracts a coin slipped from the hand

Gravity Example - Coin

Suppose that you have so many coins in your hand. And as it is hard to hold these coins, some coins slip from the hand and fall downwards. Can you guess what pulls these coins downwards? It’s the magic of gravity.

#3 Force that attracts a tennis ball thrown up in the air

Gravity Example - Tennis Ball

While playing with a tennis ball, if you throw a tennis ball up in the air, then gravity pulls it downwards. A tennis ball never floats in the air or goes up. No matter how high you throw a tennis ball up in the air, it always comes down only. This thing shows the presence of gravity.

#4 Force that attracts water falling from the tap

Gravity Example - Water Falling From Tap

When you open the tap of water, you’ll see the water falling on the ground. It’s because gravity pulls the water downwards.

#5 Force that attracts water falling from the waterfall

Gravity Example - Water Falling From Waterfall

It is so amazing to see the water falling from the waterfall. While looking at the waterfall, have you ever wondered what pulls this water downwards? The answer is gravity. No matter how much water falls from the waterfall, it always comes downwards due to gravity.

#6 Force that attracts a kite falling from the sky

Gravity Example - Kite

On Makar Sankranti, many people fly different kinds of kites. And it’s so fun to watch a kite fight in the sky. You’ve seen that when a kite gets cut off from the thread, it eventually comes down on the ground. This phenomenon of a kite falling from the sky shows the presence of gravity.

#7 Force that attracts a ball dropped from some height

Gravity Example - Ball

A ball dropped from some height comes downwards due to gravity. Even if it has more weight, less weight, or dropped from a high tower, it will always come downwards due to gravity.

#8 Force that attracts a swimmer jumping into the swimming pool

Gravity Example - Swimmer

When swimmers jump into the swimming pool, gravity pulls them downwards, and buoyant force pushes them upwards.

#9 Force that attracts an apple falling from the tree

Gravity Example - Apple

Fruits grow on the tree and fall on the ground naturally as they get ripe. This thing surprised Sir Issac Newton when he saw an apple falling from the tree, and that’s how he discovered the concept of gravity. And today, we all know that an apple falling from the tree is pulled downwards because of gravity.

#10 Force that attracts water falling from a water sprinkler

Gravity Example - Water Falling From Water Sprinkler

When a water-sprinkler sprays water in the gardens and farms, water immediately falls on the ground. This phenomenon of water falling shows the presence of gravity.

#11 Force that attracts a stone rolling down the hill

Gravity Example - Stone Rolling Down

In the mountain areas, large and small landslides often occur. When a landslide occurs, stones and other small objects start rolling down the hill. All these stones and other things that come in the way are pulled downwards by the force of gravity.

#12 Force that attracts a piece of paper floating in the air

Gravity Example - Piece of Paper

If you toss a bundle of paper up in the air, then the bundle will get separated, and all these papers will remain (for a while) in the air and then fall downwards on the floor. This thing shows the presence of gravity, as all the papers separated from a bundle come downwards on the floor.

#13 Force that attracts a small stone thrown up in the air

Gravity Example - Stone Thrown up

The next time you go on a beach, throw a small stone up in the air and see what happens. You will see the stone coming downwards. Can you guess what pulls this stone downwards? It’s the force of gravity.

#14 Force that attracts water falling from the shower

Gravity Example - Water Falling From Shower

While taking a shower in the bathroom, you have seen that water coming from a shower head falls on the floor. But have you ever wondered what pulls this water downwards? It’s the force of gravity.
