light has mass. the sun produces a lot of light. then, the mass of the light might be heavy enough to push us down towards earth thus, gravity. weight depends on the surface area. the bigger the thing is, the heavier it is. make sense?

Are you weightless in the dark?

Light has energy, not mass. Photos are massless. They do have a momentum though which has been experimentally observed. It is in no way great enough to result in the gravitational effects we see. There are also more problems than just weightless in the dark too, for example the orbits of the planets make no sense with an outwards pressure.

about the orbit thing. since the sun has a lot of light, the sun might have this constant vacuum like force to hold the planets in orbit

Gravity, not quite vaccum-like though. Only in the superficial, non-technical sense.

Why not try some experiments based on shielding? Does a ball dropped in a sealed box still hit the ground? Or weigh an object in the day and then in the night. Lots of things you could try.

Also, in the morning do you find it more difficult to walk in one direction than the other and then as the sun sets in the evening it becomes transposed and the direction you walked in the morning is now easier than walking in the direction opposite?

Yes, actually. It's called having a hangover and getting drunk, respectively. Gravity is caused by Jack Daniels. I win.

wight was never dependent on surface area. Look at Venus, it is smaller then earth, but gravity is MUCH greater... The only force I know of that is dependent on surface area would be wind resistance. Even capacitance has its acceptions

 

Light has energy, not mass. Photos are massless.

 

The idea that photons are mass-less cannot be proven, but we can limit the maximum mass. I refuse to believe photons are mass-less. I am happy to believe in something with no mass, but not photons, it just dosn't make sense when you learn about REAL sub atomics.

umm, venus has a weaker gravitational field than earth. only slightly weaker right enough but thats because the size and mass are pretty close.

The maths only works for rest mass=0 for photons to travel at the speed of light. We cannot measure a 0 ever. We can however measure speed.
