How is gravity a force if it is the result of space-time warping and bending?

Energy (and mass) "suck" spacetime (I don't think that "warps" conveys the picture well). It creates an inward flow of spacetime, which is an elastic fabric. A smaller object (...

How is gravity a force if it is the result of space-time warping and bending?

Gravity can be both a force and curved spacetime. Gravitons can create the force by passing momenta from one atom to another but the net effect of the gravitons must be atoms moving in a curved path ...

Is the gravitational force of the mass a result of combined magnetic field of every single atom in that mass?

Gravity is something different from magnetism. Magnets have a dipole field, their force decays as $r^{-3}$. Gravity is a monopole field, its force decays as $r^{-2}$. This difference is easily ...

How is gravity a force if it is the result of space-time warping and bending?

A force gauge is one of the simplest physical instruments to construct and use. Such instruments are the true foundations of physics. Despite the vanities of theorists, mathematical abstractions are ...

How is gravity a force if it is the result of space-time warping and bending?

The semantic meaning of the term force is now quite confusing. Perhaps, it has always been. We still say the four forces of nature are the weak force,the strong force, electromagnetism, and gravity. ...

How is gravity a force if it is the result of space-time warping and bending?

It is considered as force in Newtonian physics, which's property is to attract objects which are smaller. But in modern time , According to Einstein's General Relativity theory, gravity is defined as ...

Why are black holes oblate spheroids?

By your logic that the gravity is infinite, you could equally ask how can a non-spinning black hole be a sphere rather than a point? The answer is that the surfaces you are discussing are not the ...

Universe Sandbox and Hillsphere calculation (Updated)

The Gas Giant should have a hill sphere of 0.15627750286244 Astronomical Units. But that seems very large. Your planet is 12 Jupiter masses in size... it is very large! It probably counts as a small ...
