## Gravitational pull (revolutions)

I am working on my own laws of physics because I am extremely bored. Im making a law or revolution (objects revolving around other objects) and thought of a few questions that hopefull you guys can help me with. Here they are...

1) In a vacuum, where the only gravitation pull is between you and another object, would an ant revolve around an average male human? I thought of this because the suns mass is 330,000 times more than earths, and an average human males mass is 27777777 times more than a 2 cm long ant, shouldnt the ant revolve around us in a vacuum?

2) If two objects have equall mass and in a vacuum, then would they revolve around each other or cancel each other out?

3) If number one is correct, is there a ratio for how much maximum mass a object could obtain and still revolve around another object with a fixed mass lets say... one kiligram?

* please take note when answering that I am 13 years old so the simpler the better. Also if there are any links you guys know for explaining gravity in detail (not wikipedia) that would be great also.

Thank!

If you look at Pluto and its moon Charon, they actually both orbit a point that is ABOVE the surface of Pluto. The more extreme the mass difference, the less the more massive object moves compared to the smaller object. This is why the Earth is said to orbit around the Sun instead of the reverse. It is much more massive than the earth and the barycenter is near to the core of the sun. For 2 objects of equal mass, they would orbit each other. See some of the animations here.

 Thanks alot! and by massive do you mean size (ie surfacea area) or mass?

I mean mass. A neutron star is extremely tiny compared to the earth, something like 50 kilometers in diameter, but it is thousands upon thousands of times more massive. Just depends on the composition and density of the object.
 thanks!
