The law of gravitation enunciated by Newton **is, that every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle with a force** which diminishes as the square of the distance increases. Thus the sun and the earth mutually pull... | |

...subjected to calculation by NEWTON. The theory when regarded as a law of nature may be stated as follows: **Every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle with a force** which varies directly as its mass, and inversely as the square of the distance between them. Mathematicians... | |
