### The Acceleration Due to Gravity

One of the most obvious (and the weakest) of all forces in nature is the gravitational force . Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation describes the gravitational force (F g) as follows: F g = Gmm' r 2 (2) This equation states that the force between the two masses m and m' is equal to the product of their ...
