Newton's law of gravitation, statement that **any particle of matter in the universe attracts any other with a force varying directly as the product of the masses** and inversely as the square of the distance between them. ...

## What are the three laws of gravitation?

In the first law, an object will not change its motion unless a force acts on it. In the second law, the force on an object is equal to its mass times its acceleration. In the third law, when two objects interact, they **apply forces to each other of equal magnitude and opposite direction**.

## How do you explain the law of gravitation?

a law stating that any two masses attract each other with a force equal to a constant **(called the gravitational constant) multiplied by the product of the two masses and divided by the square of the distance between them**. Also called law of universal gravitation.

## What is Newton's law of gravitation Class 11?

Newton's Law of Gravitation is a universal law which states that **every particle in the universe attracts other particles with a force** that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the centers of the two particles.

## What is G in law of gravitation?

g is the local acceleration due to gravity between 2 objects. The unit for g is m/s^2 an acceleration. The **9.8 m/s^2** is the acceleration of an object due to gravity at sea level on earth. You get this value from the Law of Universal Gravitation.
