Can someone explain what gravity is? I know it pulls things down, but what is it? Can we ever see what it looks like?

Gravity is what keeps things from floating away.

Gravity is what keeps you from floating away! For ex: a water bottle when you let go of it (and there is no gravity) it floats away!

gravity is the unseen force that puts pressure on the  earth there is hardly any in space and without it we would float.

gravity is the force that keeps objects attracted to each other. The mass of the object dictates how strong the force of gravity. Any object that has mass has gravity.

The force that attracts a body towards the center of the earth, or towards any other physical body having mass. Also gravity is a force so you can't really see it.

Gravity is the air where we are not floating. The amount of the mass is how heavy it is. It is a force.

Gravity is the force that pulls organisms down to stay on the ground. We need gravity or else we and other organisms will float in the space without gravity. We can't see gravity, though. We see the effects of gravity,though. We see that organisms like us don't float in the air regularly.But that we stay on the ground were we should be.

Hope this helps!

its kind of like a magnet  and a frigde.the magnets a person and the frigde is earth exept earth dose not have a lot of graviy that we cant stand up and it dosent have a lot of gravity that we would float off earth. it has gravity in between flying around and to much.:)

Gravity is the force that pulls us to the center of the Earth's core. You cannot see it, and me, I can't feel it. Every object has gravity. Don't mistake weight for gravity though, because they are similar!
