Universal Law of Gravitation
"every object in the universe was attracted to every other object with a force (gravity) that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distances between them. "
What is G?
The constant (6.673 E-11)
Formula for Gravitational Force
F=G m1m2/r^2
