Newton’s Gravitation Law every object in this universe attracts every other object with a force which is directly proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of distance between them " GRAVITY

! Newton’s Second Law ! When force is applied, object accelerates ! Apple drops " acceleration " force present Gravitational force! F = m * a Force = mass * acceleration
