Dear student
Pls find below your updated answer to your query.
The terms  gravity and gravitation are often used to explain the same thing, but there is a definite difference between the two.
Gravitation is the attractive force existing between any two objects that have mass.
Gravity is the gravitaional force between the erath and any other bodies.
Since gravitational force is happening to all matter in the universe, from largest galaxies down to the smallest atoms, it is often called universal law of gravitation.
Newton was the first to propose the law governing this forec of attacrtion between any two masses in the universe.
 
                 Gravitational force F = G M1M2/R2
 
We hope that satisfies your query.
