Q:

What happens to the force of gravity as you move away from the Earth?

A:

As you move away from the Earth, the pull of Earth’s gravity weakens. Objects have mass and anything that has mass has gravity. The bigger the object, the stronger the force of gravity it exerts. If you were to move away from Earth, as you traveled through space you would encounter changing directions and strengths of gravity.
