Interesting question! The theory of gravity is
generally associated with Newton’s careful
observations of everyday interactions. He
developed the Law of Universal Gravitation:
Where 𝐹 is the attractive force of two objects
(how much two objects are attracted to each other)
𝑚1 and 𝑚2 are the masses
of the two objects, 𝑟2 is the distance
squared between those objects, and 𝐺 is known as
the Universal Gravitation Constant. This constant
is found empirically, meaning through careful
measurements in experiments. This equation is very
accurate for many useful applications, such as
sending satellites into deep space using the
gravity of the different planets.
