| **The mass of the first bar is three times greater than the mass of the second. Which bar is affected by the large force of gravity and how many times?**

The force of gravity acting on any body in the gravitational field of the Earth can be represented by the formula:

Fт = m * g, where m – body mass, g – gravitational acceleration.

Since for the first and second bars the gravitational acceleration is the same, a large gravity force acts on a bar with a larger mass. The ratio of the masses of these bars will show how many times the force of gravity acting on the larger bar is greater.

Ft1 / Ft2 = m1 / m2 = 3.

Answer: The force of gravity acts on the first bar three times more.
