# what prevents gravity from pulling you through the ground to the center of the earth?

-Art say: The Earth is denser than you are. Face it if you try standing on water you get pulled down to the center of the Earth till you hit a surface denser than you are.-Todd say: If its a vacuum tube that can withstand the temperature and pressure, youll get to the other side in almost exactly 42 minutes without propulsion if its at the same altitude start and finish. Answer: nothing if you only rely on gravity as your accelerant and also what slows you down approaching the other side.-Tom S say: The ground.......

Nate say: Don't worry, it's because of normal force ;)

John say: Uh...the ground does. The ground is incredibly dense and the earth's gravitational pull isn't that strong!

PALANGGA_KO say: Of course you cannot penetrate toward Earth's inner core, simply because you're just like a dust on Earth's surface.

oldprof say: Electromagnetic force. EMF surrounds all atoms as it's generated by the bound electrons that surround the nuclei. And EMF is stronger than gravity force.

In fact the force of gravity is the weakest of the four fundamental forces of nature.

The evidence is in the seat of your pants. If the EMF surrounding the atoms in your chair and in your butt did not exist, your atoms and the chair's atoms would merge and commingle as gravity pulled you down into the pan of the chair. And you'd be stuck with a chair on your butt.

But the repelling force of EMF is stronger than the gravity pulling you into the chair. So your butt and the chair atoms do not mix. Which I think you'll agree is a good thing.
