and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
 
Above statement is Newton's law of gravitation that describes what is gravitational force .
 
Let m1 and m2 are two masses separated by a distance d , then by Newton's law of gravitation,
magnitude of gravitational force F between two masses is given by
 
Where G is known as universal gravitational constant , G = 6.674 × 10-11 N m2 kg-2
