Gravitation

In the 17th century Sir Isaac Newton discovered the Universal Law of Gravitation.

He observed the motion of planets along with Johannes Kepler`s planetary motion data.

Newton`s law of gravitation was formulated which describes the force of attraction between two masses.

The force of attraction between two masses depends on the size of the masses multiplied together and inversely proportional to the square of the distances apart.
