It is very difficult to answer this question as can be seen from the excerpt that I found on the internet and have pasted below. It says that maybe gravity itself is a pseudo force...
Perhaps gravity is only a pseudo force?
Nobel price laureate Richard Feynman said that gravity may only be a pseudo force... Here is a direct quote from his book “Lectures on Physics", chapter 12-11:
“One very important feature of pseudo forces is that they are always proportional to the masses; the same is true of gravity. The possibility exists, therefore, that gravity itself is a pseudo force. Is it not possible that perhaps gravitation is due simply to the fact that we do not have the right coordinate system?” (Richard Feynman)
