Webinar: Understanding Gravity


Presented on November 21, 2019, by Julie Bolduc-Duval

Despite the fact that we live with its effects on a daily basis, gravity remains a mystery for many. It is not always easy to explain the forces behind gravity, and answer the many questions of students: Why do astronauts “float”? What is a black hole and what would happen if we fell into it? Why are there tides?

In this webinar, we will take a look at the difficulties students face when it comes to understanding gravity, and we will discuss specific examples of cases ranging from “absence” of gravity to cases of extreme gravity.
