### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

It would not grow, if by grow you mean increase in volume. It would not decrease in density. If the earth was just made of water, gravity would...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

Not quite. The earth at its normal rotation rate is not spinning nearly fast enough to reduce the amount of force due to gravity on anything lying...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

I am assuming for arguments sake you start from a position on the equator. Once the earth and you on its surface have reached a critical speed, you...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

Assuming no atmosphere and a perfectly spherical earth, you would be in orbit right at the earth's surface. Not sure what point you are trying to...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

I assume you want me to assume there is no atmosphere and that the earth is not spinning... If the earth expanded slowly, when the radii of the...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

I would like to get some clarity on what you are trying to say here in your last paragraph quoted above. I don't understand your first sentence of...

Not really. Can you explain this a little further?

The sun's gravity still acts on the loose objects keeping them in orbit around the sun.

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

Yes, and therefore objects at the poles would remain in the same orbit they were in before gravity ceased.

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

Sorry I answered without realizing that the earth's speed around the sun is upwards of 66,000 mph. The relatively slow speed of objects being flung...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

Objects in areas between the adjacent and opposite sides of the earth to the sun would be flung into more and more highly eccentric orbits as they...

### Is it possible that the gravity that keeps our feet planted on the Earth is..

If somehow you could turn off gravity, any loose item on the earths surface would start to float upwards. Slowly at first as objects would be...
