Gravitation homework Help at TutorEye



Gravitation or gravity is the force of attraction between particles separated by a definite distance.It is the universal force of attraction acting between all the bodies in the universe. The concept of gravity is a natural phenomenon between two bodies, where each body exerts force on each other. It controls the movement of bodies in the solar system and also determines its trajectories.
