Is the gravitational pull on an object equalised if the object is at the centre of a planet, ie surrounded by the mass of the planet which is creating the gravity?


Question asked by: knowitall

The gravitational pull in this instance would be the same from all directions, so the net effect would be no movement.

Of course you would have to be completely encircled by the massive objects like in the centre of a ring for instance.
