Gravity against the car

As we know from the school curriculum, the value of the acceleration of free fall (g) of the Earth is approximately 9.8 m/s2. This figure determines what is called the force of gravity — the force by which our planet attracts bodies on its surface.

There are no two planets with the same gravity in the solar system. For example, on Venus the value of g is 8.88 m/s2 (90% of Earth), while on Jupiter this figure is 24.79 m/s2 (252% of Earth).

Gamer and blogger @crash.enabled decided to make a visual comparison of gravity on different bodies of the solar system. To do this, he used the program facility of the game, a distinctive feature of which is the unique physics of soft bodies, which is used to simulate the behavior of vehicles.

Created by @crash.enabled, the video shows the effects of a load falling on a car on Earth, Mars, Moon, Pluto, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter. Mass and discharge height are the same. You can pay attention to how the speed of falling of the load changes depending on the force of gravity.

At the end of the video, we can also see what would happen to the car if it was affected by gravity similar to that which can be experienced on the surface of the Sun (it is 27 times higher than the earth). In this situation, the car would simply fall apart under its own weight without any outside influence.
