Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation

Newton knew that the force that caused the apple’s acceleration (gravity) must be dependent upon the mass of the apple. And since the force acting to cause the apple’s downward acceleration also causes the earth’s upward acceleration (Newton’s third law), that force must also depend upon the mass of the earth. 167 more words
