In order to complete his study of the motion of the planets, Newton had to combine his general Laws of Motion with a specific description of the force of gravity.
Gravity is relatively weak because of the small value of the gravitation constant G; in metric units,
By combining the Law of Gravitation with his Laws of Motion, Newton was able to mathematically derive all three of Kepler's law.
