The theories of gravitation describe the force between two masses. Newton related the level of the gravitational force to the mass of two given objects and the distance between them. The gravitational force FG between body M1 and m2 (Figure 10.1) at a distance d can be calculated from the Newtonian formula of gravitation:
$$ F_{\text{G}} = \frac{{GM_1 m_2 }} {{d^2 }}$$
where G is Newton’s gravitational constant.
