:shock: Wow, no offense if you actually are being serious but you just get less believable as time goes on (but if you are serious you'll probably ignore my statement because you believe I have been brainwashed into believing the scientists' dogma of the round Earth). But I don't mind wasting time on this debate whether you're serious or not since I view this as a sort of intellectual hobby. But anyway......

I can understand your reasons for thinking your diagram is accurate but in all reallity it is not. We as of yet dont fully understand the way gravity works. It is not fully understood. So you have made alot of assumptions when you drew those diagrams.

We don't understand what exactly causes gravity but we do understand how it

**acts** on different objects therefore I made no assumptions of this kind.

Your diagram assumes the earth is round and is not being affected by many things. For example. According to the theory of a round earth. The bigger an object is the more the force of gravity acts on it. I would like to say that that theroy canot be true for the very reason as we have many new objects on the planet. Ice from comets and rock from meteorites. If the bigger an object is the more gravity effects it wouldn't it be fare to say that gravity should be increasing. If the planet is getting larger due to forign bodies from space landing on it, wouldn't this in turn increase the force of gravity. How are we still able to walk around and move. It seems to me that it should be harder to move every day due to this. It seems that athletes are able to run faster and jump higher. This doesent make sense under your theory.

Newton's law of universal gravitation states that:

F = -(G x m1 x m2)/r^2

where:

F is the magnitude of the (repulsive) gravitational force between two objects

G is the gravitational constant, approx: G = 6.67×10−11 N m2 kg-2

m1 is the mass of first object

m2 is the mass of second object

r is the distance between the objects

and as a consequence of that law:

g = -(G x m1)/r^2

where g is the acceleration due to gravity

So to find the acceleration due to gravity you simply subsitute:

m1 = mass of earth = 5.9736×10^24 kg

r = radius of the Earth = 6,378,135 km

So:

g = -6.67×10−11 × (5.9736×10^24)/6378135^2

g = -9.794326054 m/s^2

This is the actual value of the acceleration due to gravity.

Now, lets say that each year about 10,000,000,000,000 kilograms (10^13 kg) worth of metorites fall to the Earth each year (that's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay bigger than the largest estimate that I can find). So over 50 years 5x10^14 kg would have accumulated. The equation becomes:

g = -6.67×10−11 × (5.9736×10^24+5x10^14)/6378135^2

g = -9.794326055 m/s^2

That's an increase in the acceleration due to gravity of only about 0.000000001 m/s^2!!
