Act. 5.1: Fundamental Forces Gravitational force - an attractive force that exists between all objects. The gravitational force between the center of the Earth and objects near it causes objects to fall toward the surface of the Earth. Electromagnetic force – holds matter together by providing the force that binds atoms into molecules. The force between particles of opposite charge is attractive. The force between particles of the same charge is repulsive. 5-2 + + + - - -
