Gravitation Class 11 Notes


Gravitation or Gravity is a natural phenomenon, gravitational force is the force which exists among all material objects in the universe. For any object having non zero masses, the force of gravity tends to attract them towards each other.

Universal Law of Gravitation:  It states that each and every particle attracts every other particle in the universe with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.

In class 11 physics, students will learn various laws of gravitation, the acceleration due to gravity, gravitational potential energy and lot more. Here is the list of topics one has to study while studying the chapter of gravitation.

  • Kepler’s law
  • Universal Law of Gravitation
  • Gravitational Constant
  • Acceleration due to gravity below, above the surface of earth and due to gravity of the earth.
  • Gravitational Potential Energy
  • Types of satellites.
  • Escape Speed.
  • Weightlessness.
