Why Gravity is Not a Force?

Shirin Nafikova

Abstract: In high school physics classes, we were taught that gravity is a force. Nobody has ever explained why gravity is a force or what its nature is. In this article, I will try my best to explain how gravity actually works. Gravity is often thought of as a force between objects with mass. When you stand on a scale, for example, the number you see there shows the pull of the planet Earth's gravity on your mass or weight. It is easy to imagine the gravitational force of the Sun holding the planets in their orbits or the strong gravitational pull near a black hole. Gravity appears to be a simple concept after all, since forces are easy to understand as pushes and pulls.
