Can a rotating ship simulate gravity?

Question

If we are to make extended human trips into space ie to Mars or even further - one idea to ensure humans survive zero gravity conditions was to have a space ship that revolved and that would create artificial gravity. I thought gravity was related to the mass of a body not whether it revolved or not?
 
Can you please explain that for me?
 
Thanks
 
Paul
