  Gravitation - MSN Encarta
Gravitation is by far the weakest of these forces and, as a result, is not important in the interactions of atoms and nuclear particles or even of moderate-sized objects, such as people or cars.
The gravitational attraction of objects for one another is the easiest fundamental force to observe and was the first fundamental force to be described with a complete mathematical theory by the English physicist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton.
The ocean tides are caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun on the earth and its oceans.

Gravitation is the force of attraction that acts between all objects because of their mass.
Because of gravitation, an object that is near Earth falls toward the surface of the planet.
Newton knew that Earth's gravitation holds the moon in its orbit around Earth, and he calculated the strength of Earth's gravitation at the distance of the moon.

  gravitation - Encyclopedia.com
Since the gravitational force is experienced by all matter in the universe, from the largest galaxies down to the smallest particles, it is often called universal gravitation.
Newton's theory of gravitation was long able to explain all observable gravitational phenomena, from the falling of objects on the earth to the motions of the planets.
Whereas gravitation is the attractive force acting to draw any bodies together, gravity indicates that force in operation between the earth and other bodies, i.e., the force acting to draw bodies toward the earth.

  Gravitation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gravitation is one of the four fundamental interactions in nature, the other three being the electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear force, and the strong nuclear force.
Moreover, gravitation is the reason for the very existence of the earth, the sun, and other celestial bodies; without it matter would not have coalesced into these bodies and life as we know it would not exist.
Gravitation is also responsible for keeping the earth and the other planets in their orbits around the sun, the moon in its orbit around the earth, for the formation of tides, and for various other natural phenomena that we observe.

 Gravitation - LoveToKnow 1911
The law of gravitation is unique among the laws of nature, not only in its wide generality, taking the whole universe in its scope, but in the fact that, so far as yet known, it is absolutely unmodified by any condition or cause whatever.
We might conceive the rapid motions of the heavenly bodies to result in some change either in the direction or amount of their gravitation towards each other at each moment; but such is not the case, even in the most rapidly moving bodies of the solar system.
In the case of the motion of the moon around the earth, assuming the gravitation of the latter to be subject to the modification in question, the annual motion of the moon's perigee should be greater by I 5" than the theoretical motion.

 Sir Isaac Newton: The Universal Law of Gravitation
The constant of proportionality G is known as the universal gravitational constant.
Thus, the weight of an object of mass m at the surface of the Earth is obtained by multiplying the mass m by the acceleration due to gravity, g, at the surface of the Earth.
Mass is a measure of how much material is in an object, but weight is a measure of the gravitational force exerted on that material in a gravitational field; thus, mass and weight are proportional to each other, with the acceleration due to gravity as the proportionality constant.

 Science 122 Program 17 Gravitation
It is the gravitational force necessary to accelerate a mass at the rate of g, on earth 10 meters per second squared.
It is one one hand a consequence of the gravitational equation applied to the earth (m1) the object (m2) and the distance to the center of the earth from the surface, or the radius of the earth (r).
It can't be the gravitational constant because it is constant.

 Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation
This comparison led him to conclude that the force of gravitational attraction between the Earth and other objects is inversely proportional to the distance separating the earth's center from the object's center.
This force of gravitational attraction is directly dependent upon the masses of both objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance which separates their centers.
Gravitational interactions do not simply exist between the earth and other objects; and not simply between the sun and other planets; gravitational interactions exist between all objects with an intensity which is directly proportional to the product of their masses.

 A Description of Gravitation
The spherical symmetry of the gravitational field is due to the fact that all the spatial dimensions are equally connected to the time dimension; this allows the spherically opposing spatial dimensions (+x, -x, etc.) to match up exactly at the center of mass where they self-annihilate "cleanly", leaving a metrically equivalent temporal residue.
Gravitation is both a symmetry debt and an entropy debt, unique among the charges and their forces.
The conservation role of gravitation is complex on the one hand, in that gravitation has two primary conservation roles, one involving light's entropy drive (light's intrinsic motion), and another involving an aspect of light's symmetric energy state (light's "non-locality").

Gravitation thus becomes the natural outcome of so-called "distorted space." It loses its Newtonian interpretation as a tangible mechanical force and gains the rank of an "apparent" force, due merely to the condition of space itself.
After the gravitator is once fully discharged, its impulse exhausted, the electrical potential must be removed for at least five minutes in order that it may recharge itself and regain its normal gravitic condition.
While the gravitator is at present primarily a scientific instrument, perhaps even an astronomical instrument, it also is rapidly advancing to a position of commercial value.

Precession is caused by the gravitational attraction of the Sun on the equatorial bulge of the Earth, the bulge being predicted by Newton.
Euler, from 1760 onwards, seems to be the first to study the general problem of three bodies under mutual gravitation (rather than looking at bodies in the solar system) although at first he only considered the restricted three body problem when one of the bodies has negligible mass.
This was a remarkable achievement for Newton's theory of gravitation and of celestial mechanics.

 Gravitation
Since G is so very small, the gravitational attraction between small masses on the earth's surface is not noticeable compared with the gravitational attraction between either mass and the earth.
Gravitation is only an attractive force unlike electromagnetic forces which can be both attractive and repulsive.
The gravitational field's strength at a distance r from the center of an object of mass, m, can be calculated with the equation.

 Gravitation | English | Dictionary & Translation by Babylon
Gravitation Attraction, and hence gravitation, is a manifestation of cosmic desire, which draws together separate things into unities.
The effects of gravitation within our terrestrial limits are calculable; and by transferring these laws speculatively to the stellar spaces, we can construct a coherent mechanics not only of the solar system but of the galaxy.
Gravitation, like all the other phenomena of nature, is to be attributed to living beings of cosmic magnitude by reason of the vital electricity or vital magnetism emanating from these beings, which electricity or magnetism is at once one of the phenomena of life and of cosmic intelligence.

Their contributions which we now discuss were not thought at the time to be in any way connected, for Kepler's contribution concerned the orbits of the planets round the Sun while that of Galileo concerned motion and the acceleration of falling objects.
This theory of gravitation was certainly a pleasing one.
It was a devastating attack on Descartes' vortex theory of gravitation and put forward a brilliantly simple theory from which so much could be explained.

General relativity was not the first classical relativistic field theory of gravitation, or even the first metric theory of gravitation — that was Nordström's theory of gravitation, which is now known to be incompatible with observation.
General relativity is fundamentally awkward in the way it handles how energy/momentum is exchanged between the gravitational field and everything else; teleparallel gravity is an alternative theory motivated in part by an attempt to remedy this theoretical flaw.
General relativity is awkward in the way it handles the coupling of spin to gravitation at the level of test particles; Einstein-Cartan gravitation is motivated in part by an attempt to remedy this flaw.
