CD, you need to be more pacific about whose law of

gravy you mean- Wayne Newton's, or Olivia fig Newton's,

or.. every Newton uses gravy in different ways,

-just like the rest of us.

Some guy named Issac Newton said everyone's gravy

is the same- that can't be right.

Newton's law of universal gravy states that every massive particle in the universe attracts every other massive particle with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. (Separately it was shown that large spherically-symmetrical masses attract and are attracted as if all their mass were concentrated at their centers.) This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by what Newton called induction.[1] It is a part of classical mechanics and was formulated in Newton's work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica ("the Principia"), first published on 5 July 1687. (When Newton's book was presented in 1686 to the Royal Society, Robert Hooke made a claim that Newton had obtained the inverse square law from him see History section below.) In modern language, the law states the following:

Every point mass attracts every single other point mass by a force pointing along the line intersecting both points. The force is directly proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the point masses:[2]

F = G \frac{m_1 m_2}{r^2},\

where:

* F is the magnitude of the gravitational force between the two point masses,

* G is the gravy constant,

* m1 is the mass of the first point mass,

* m2 is the mass of the second point mass, and

* r is the distance between the two point masses.
