What is the distance of gravity from the earth?

    What is the distance of gravity from the earth? Is it up to the Earth's atmosphere called "Vayumandal" or it is endless? Does the space itself has its' own gravity? My dear friend who is a teacher is saying that earth's gravity and its force is endless and it is upto the another planet in solar system. Even my self answered to him that earth's vayumandal is the end of the gravity of earth. and after that we feel the gravity of space/ universe.

    Asking questions, including rhetorical questions, is a good way to encourage thinking and introspection. For answers, your first online resource should always be google, a repository of vast knowledge.

    These Physics Forums are divided into various 'specialties' with the intention that posts on a particular topic will that way be more likely to be seen by those with an interest in that topic. The forum you posted to is for Introductions by new members, basically an opportunity for you to say Hi and test your browser's compatibility with the forum software. So your questions on gravity won't be answered here.

    After you have looked around the forums, and read our general guidelines for posting, feel free to ask some on-topic questions in any of the forums of interest.
