The definition of gravitational is something caused by gravity.
An example of gravitational is the movement caused by gravity, like the gravitational pull experienced by an apple causing it to drop down after it rolls off a table.
- The crowning trophies of gravitational astronomy in the r8th century were Laplace's explanations of the " great inequality ".
- When we know the mass of the earth in gravitational measure, its product by the denominator of the fraction just mentioned gives the mass of the sun in gravitational measure.
- The problems of gravitational astronomy engaged the chief part of Hansen's attention.
- But as things are the watersurface is broken by land, and the mean density of the substance of the land is 2 6 times as great as that of sea-water, so that the gravitational attraction of the land must necessarily cause a heaping up of the sea around the coasts, forming what has been called the continental wave, and leaving the sea-level lower in mid-ocean.
- For many purposes a gravitational system of measurement is most natural; thus we speak of a force of so many pounds or so many kilogrammes.
