Gravitational pull is directly related to mass. It pulls just as hard on a tonne of water as it does on a tonne of rock.

A tonne of water takes up more space, as it is less dense. And indeed, the gravitational pull over a large rock formation is higher than over the deep ocean, as all that rock adds its own mass to the pull. That will easily make for a few hundreds of a % difference.

The gravitational constant isn't a constant anymore either!
Scientists determined it has systemic variance.
Something is messing with our gravity...
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
