Q:

# What is Venus's gravitational pull?

A:

According to NASA, the surface gravitational pull on Venus is 9.5 meters per second squared, or 31 feet per second squared. The gravitational constant, G, is based on Earth's gravity and is equal to 1 on Earth, but because Venus has less gravity, G is equal to .88 on Venus.

According to Cal Tech University, since Venus and Earth are almost the same size and mass, their surface gravitational pulls are almost the same. The surface gravity on Venus is about 91 percent of the surface gravity on Earth. Therefore, if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 91 pounds on Venus.

Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system, with an average surface temperature of 872 degrees Fahrenheit. The average temperature for the whole planet is 864 F. The reason for its high temperatures is not its proximity to the sun, but its heavy atmosphere composed mainly of carbon dioxide.
