We all know about the gravitational force as we experience it in our daily lives, in fact, it is applied in all parts and all things of the planet Earth. It can be said pretty easily that we are able to live our lives in a proper manner because of gravitational force, otherwise, we all would have been flying in the air. Gravitational force is the force which pulls everything with mass on the ground and there is nothing on this Earth which is not affected with this force.

However, some exceptions are there and we are going to tell you about some places where gravity doesn’t work:

The experiment:

Take a water bottle, open it and try to drop water in the dam but the water will flow upwards rather than flowing down. The light weighted objects also fly upwards if they are thrown in the dam. Scientists say that it happens because of the shape of the dam which makes the air flow forceful in the upper direction.
