Comet Gravity and Temperature
What is the gravitational field intensity and
temperature of a comet?
Although comets have some gravitational field, they do not have very
much. You could probably jump off a comet and into deep space
without too much trouble. A comet has enough gravity to cause
surface "volcanic-type eruptions" releasing gas and dust into its tail.
Hope this helps.
