Gravity moving toward the center of the Sun?? Ok can someone tell me if I am wrong in my understanding here (in a heated debate with a physics professor) : As you move from the surface of the sun to the center, does the force of gravity increase or decrease and why? The point I am trying to make is that it decreases because once you are at the center you are being pulled equally in all directions by the mass of the sun that is surrounding you and if you were at the surface, you essentially have the entire mass of the sun "beneath" you. So just looking at it simply mathematically you are going from maximum gravity at the surface to minimum at the core and therefore the force of gravity must be decreasing. HOW AM I WRONG????
