Here's a question to those of you who are smarter than me in the feild of science:

You've got two stars/planets/bodies that exert the same amount of gravity on a volume of space. Now, if you placed an object in that area where the gravitational pulls overlap, what would happen? Assuming the forces were strong enough, would the object be crushed/torn apart? Would there be an equalization and thus seem like there is zero gravity? Would the object be forced to the center of the area?

Visualization!

O = planet

X = object

( ) = edges of the gravity

(.....O(..X..)O.....)

I don't think anything would happen...because the gravitational pull of the objects [assuming they've got the same amount of gravity/gravitational pull] would cancel one another. BUT, I asked a friend of mine what you asked, and he said that the two planets or whatever would be pulling at each other, so they would be moving towards one another slowly. THUS, the object would eventually be crushed because its between the two planets/whatever and yeah...they'd crushed it between themselves.

^ Yeah. That seems like the answer right there.

Eventually the plants will pull together.

Now, provided the planets don't pull together, the object would stay in the center & nothing would happen.

yeah, that part too -- lol, but i wasn't sure if i should state the last part so yeah. lol, gotta love physics eh...

uh, just one more thing -- the object would only eventually be crushed due to the pull of the two planets if they are stationary. however, if they are in an orbit -- nothing would happen to the object...OR, it will pull towards whatever planet is closer, depending on their orbits.

there's a whoooole bunch of other shit lol...but i don't think you wanna go into that lol...

She blinded me with science! (@o@ )!!!

(^o^ ) <3

haha yeah...gotta love physics, science and all that other good shit eh.

If the object gets too close to one of the bodies, it will fall inside it's Roche Limit, and be torn apart by the tidal forces exerted upon it. Example: Saturn's rings, and Jupiter's rings, are made up of the remnants of moons that got too close to the planets, and were pulverised by tidal forces...Enjoy!

^ Ah! Indeed! I didn't think about that, but for those that would like to know, her's a quickie!

It depends, really.

I mean, look at binary systems.
