# Does a person on Earth experience the same gravitational force as someone in space?

Does a person on Earth experience the same gravitational force as someone in space?

answer) No because as we move farther away from the earth , the force of gravity decreases , so thats why we see astronauts float in their spaceship because of very less gravity.

The space station orbits Earth about 400 km above the surface of Earth (NASA.gov). At this height the force of gravity from Earth is only about 10% less than on the surface of Earth. Using the concepts of circular motion and gravitational forces explain the following: 1. Why does the space station not fall down? 2. Why do the astronauts float inside the space station?
