Where did the gravitational force in the Solar system originate from? What is our galaxy revolving around? Please explain in depth because I know the basics
My bad, typo What is our Galaxy ROTATING around. If our galaxy is rotating around several massive black holes, 1. The whole galaxy would eventually get sucked into one of these "massive black holes". 2. If Our galaxy was rotating around a black hole, artists would depict the center of our galaxy with a black spot, not a massive ball of light.

2. The only way to understand the current consensus on how it works is by reading the book "The Elegant Universe" or one like it. Essentially matter warps space and that causes objects that would be traveling straight to curve.

3. i would give you 10 points for the question how can i tell you this when the experts don't know waiting on a good answer like you good luck

4. The current theory is that the universe was originally a chaotic collection of dust and gas. As this dust & gas coaleced it gained massed. As it gained mass it created gravitiational forces.

5. All atoms create gravity - gravity is an attaction between two or more atoms that are not otherwise connected.

So our solar system's gravity is actually spread out among all of the planets, but it's strongest (physicists say "the gravity well is deepest") at the center of the sun.

Gravity acts as if a big body was actually just a point in space. So the center of the solar system's gravity is at a point in space that corresponds to the center of the sun, or pretty close to it.

Gravity works by making a dent in spacetime. Spacetime is like a trampoline, it wants to return to a zero-gravity state. But big objects, like the sun, make big dents. And little objects, even though they make dents, get sucked into bigger dents. If those little objects are spinning around the center of the gravity well fast enough, they won't fall into the big object's gravity and get destroyed. If they aren't moving fast enough, they'll crash.

6. Well Sir izzac newton made the discovery of gravity and everything evolved from there.

here is an article about it

7. I would question your claim that you "know the basics." The Milky Way galaxy isn't "revolving" around anything...though it is "rotating" about its center of mass which likely contains one or several massive black holes. (One who knows the basics does not mix up the terms for rotate and revolve.)

And, oh yeah, nobody knows where the force of gravity originates from. We know many of its properties, but not its origin. I would have thought you already knew that.

8. In order to answer your question a person needs to know why a field of gravity forms. First of all, Stephen Hawking in "A Brief History of Time," page 92, paragraph 3, states; "Like light, gravitational waves carry energy away from the objects that emit them." So, a field of gravity is a particular form of energy. This form of energy is described in the physics trilogy, which is: E = mc2, m = E/c2, and c2 = E/m. The last is that of a field of gravity or that of a field of time. It is an energy/mass relationship.

The form of energy spoken of in the equation is that of the heat energy contained within a mass. The greater the heat energy, the greater the field of gravity. Were a mass the size of our planet to have no heat energy within it, then it would have no field of gravity about it. Were the heat energy to increase, the force would increase.

Our sun expends 665 lbs/sec in order to keep the planets in place about it, and our planet expends 0.00444 kg/sec in order to keep us in place about it. There is an experiment that was performed a few weeks ago that proves a field of gravity is able to be formed and collapsed. It is found at http://youtube.com and the name of the experiment is "successful gravity experiment". It had to be posted in segments because of time restrictions, so it needs to be put back together.

9. Gravity is a characteristic of matter, which composed the stars, planets, and everything we know. When an object of small mass comes close to an object of greater mass, it is gravitationally attracted to the larger mass. The Sun is the most massive object in the solar system, so it is the prime source of gravity. The Earth's gravity keeps the Moon in orbit, Jupiter keeps its moons in orbit, and so on.

The spiral arms of our galaxy spin around the galactic core, which is the center of greatest mass. There a huge black hole devours millions of stars, becoming more massive every second.

10. It leaks in from another dimension. That's why it is so weak.
